Boulevard landscaping designs unveiled – what do you think?


Coastal planting, granite paving and light and airy seaside feel could line the new-look Millbay boulevard.

More detailed designs for the boulevard are being unveiled which will totally change Bath Street and transform a rundown back lane into a tree-lined street with wide pavements, seating and new lighting.

The boulevard will eventually be the location for up to 300 new homes and a new 170 bed hotel, making an attractive landscape crucially important.

A six-week public consultation starts today on its draft proposals for the new street which will create the long-awaited link between the city centre and the waterfront.

Part of the redevelopment plans include a sliver of land along the western edge of the Pavilions site, broadening the width of Bath Street to make the boulevard possible.

Draft ideas for the look and feel of the Boulevard have been prepared are on the Council’s website www.plymouth.gov.uk/bigbuild/millbayboulevard

The public consultation starts on Monday 1 October and runs for six weeks, ending on 12 November. There are also three public events for people view the proposals and speak to Council staff. They are:

  • Union Street Party – Sunday 30 September from 12(noon) till 4 pm,
  • Plymouth City Market, West End – Monday 1 October from 10 am till 4 pm
  • Plymouth City Market, West End – Wednesday 3 October from 10 am till 4 pm.
