Comments sought on High Street plan
Posted on Wednesday 8th November 2017
A conservation management plan for High Street has been prepared as part of a project aiming to restore Market Arcade.
Earlier this year, Newport City Council secured first stage funding to develop a scheme to for the link between High Street and Market Street.
The project has been promoting and celebrating the awareness of Newport's rich heritage and aims to establish Market Arcade as an attractive commercial proposition within the city centre.
Later this year, it will submit a bid for the second phase which will enable architectural details of the Victorian Grade ll listed arcade.
The High Street Conservation Area Management Plan continues the work undertaken by a characterisation study which was published in the autumn.
Its principle points include:
- Recognising the heritage assets in the area
- To identify risks which threaten the significance and special interests of the area
- An action plan to ensure the management, preservation and enhancement of the area
Comments have to be made by 8 December. To read the full report, find out how to submit comments and for more information about the Market Arcade project can be found at http://www.newport.gov.uk/en/About-Newport/CityontheRise/Market-Arcade.aspx
