Market Place Plans - Option 1
This will see the creation of a community open space to the right of the Market Place. This scheme has been reviewed by the focus group from different aspects of Devizes life and concluded that this location links the main pedestrianised shopping areas. It was also felt that the scheme provided for a good circulation of traffic, keeping the community space and parking separate. Care will need to be taken to ensure that it does not look like a big empty space.
The final design needs to think about how businesses beyond the community space can be drawn into it, as well as a good link between the Market Place and Corn Exchange. Bringing the coach drop off point into the Market Place is seen as an advantage but the design needs to work with the highway’s department to review the exit as a roundabout might be better.
Better cycle parking is needed and motorcycle parking needs to be retained.
