Consultation for commuters on railway station revamp


Plymouth’s regular rail commuters will be getting a sneak peak of the big picture for the area around the city’s railway station.

A masterplan is being unveiled and displayed on the concourse next Tuesday (2 July) so that people who use the station most can see what changes could be coming down the line.

The University of Plymouth recently showcased by way of a public consultation, its exciting ambition to transform the tower above the station into Intercity Place. This will house inter-professional clinical skills and nursing/midwifery facilities as well as additional educational services to support the future health workforce.

Subject to planning permission being granted, it would signal the first major work to rejuvenate the station and its surrounds as the anchor investor.

Now, those who use the station most are being asked for their thoughts and comments on the overall vision and ideas for the redevelopment.

Consultants White Young Green and Plymouth City Council staff will be on hand to talk to commuters and to explain the scheme in more detail.

They will be on the concourse next to the Spar – from 7.30am to 10am and then in the afternoon from 4pm until 6pm.

The masterplan will also be on view at www.wyg.com/planning/consultations

A more detailed release will be available on 2 July.
