Yeovil town centre is set to receive highly anticipated transformational refresh changes to the public realm.
The public realm enhancement work will change the areas that people move or congregate around and will make areas more attractive to residents, visitors and businesses. There are a total of six areas of the town centre which will see changes including Westminster Street, The Borough, upper Middle Street( including Wine Street), Middle Street (East), Middle Street (West) and The Triangle.
Work is scheduled to start in early February and will be completed in a phased approach over a few years to ensure the town centre can keep running while the construction work is delivered, beginning with Westminster Street.
This slideshow shows artist's impressions of how the public realm areas in Yeovil town centre should look following completion of the work.
Our video is a fly through of Yeovil town centre and shows how all of the public realm work will connect and make the area a complete town centre.
The Yeovil Refresh programme aims to create a town centre that will be a vibrant place to live, work, shop, learn and visit, with a number of key projects being delivered as part of the work.
As part of that work, we have been looking at how the public spaces (public realm) can be improved to enhance the experience in the town centre for everyone.
Designs have focussed on reducing clutter in the town centre and making the areas more appealing for people to visit. For example, The Triangle will see a complete transformation and could become a central focal area for visitors to congregate and enjoy activities.
