Waringstown Public Realm Consultation - Concept

Closed 11 Jan 2021

Opened 4 Dec 2020

Overview

As part of the ongoing commitment to urban regeneration, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council are continuing to plan for the future development of Waringstown Public Realm Scheme, providing high quality improvements within the settlement.

The theme of the design is based on the Weaving History of Waringstown and the layout of the feature elements within are based on the weaving spindles and the threads of material running between the spindles. The paving surrounding these feature elements would be natural stone which would generally be the paving material used within this focus area.

This ‘hub’ area would also feature new street tree planting, new lighting, new seating provision and revitalised planting beds.

A raised table is proposed at the junction location between Main Street, Banbridge Road and Mill Hill to alleviate some of the traffic problems.
