New play area at Henbury Gardens West

In 2018 we delivered a new play space at Henbury Gardens West. The play area is designed to provide a range of activities for 0-5 year olds, and 5-11 year olds.

Phase 1B

Our Vision for Station Square

The main purpose of the Initiative is to provide a district centre where people want to shop as well as delivering new homes to meet local people’s aspirations. In addition, the Initiative will deliver new high-quality public spaces.

The proposals have enabled us to enhance Station Square introducing a high-quality gateway to the retail units and station. The new public space has been built to create a functional area which will improve the sense of arrival, direction and safety.

The new public space is framed by new retail units to the north and south of the square, with office space above ground level. The vehicular loop has been reduced to maximise the public realm which fronts the station. A bespoke café with an external terrace has generated activity and vibrancy within the new space.

Over 20,000 sq ft of new retail and office space has been provided over ground, first and second floors. The vision for the new square was to provide a range of retail unit size options for small to medium sized businesses, with opportunities for office occupiers at first and second floor level.

This phase included the demolition of The Ox pub and buildings to the north of St Andrews Road and the construction of:

  • 174 homes including 48 affordable homes
  • 8,000sqft of Retail Space
  • A new Market Square on Prestwick Road
  • Public open space at Henbury Place

Phase 3A and 3B

The final phase will see the demolition of buildings to the south of St Andrews Road and the construction of:

  • 200 new homes
  • 18,500sqft Lidl store
  • 4,000sqft of complementary retail space
