Public consultation on Yeovil public realm proposals & Design Guide

LHC Design was commissioned in early 2019 to produce a Design Guide for Yeovil in South Somerset. The document is being developed to guide the design and character of street and public space schemes in the town.

A number of concept schemes have been developed for six key spaces within the core of the town centre spine: The Borough, Middle Street, Westminster Street/High Street, The Triangle, Middle Street East and Wyndham Street.

The proposals for these six areas will be the subject of a public consultation event to be held at:

The Borough
Saturday 20th July 2019
10am to 3pm

The consultation will explain how the emerging proposals would enhance streets and spaces to make the town more attractive for residents, businesses and tourists. They build upon the principles set out in the ‘Yeovil Refresh’ which was adopted by South Somerset District Council in 2018. The consultation will also provide the opportunity for you to review and comment.

Your comments and feedback will help shape the proposals.

The consultation panels and an online feedback form will be available from 20th July at www.southsomerset.gov.uk/yeovilpublicrealm
