Designs and proposed surfacing materials for an improved Oakham High Street with one-way traffic flow will go on display at Oakham Library from 14th November to 15th December 2017 as part of the town centre regeneration scheme being led by Rutland County Council.
The display will include design drawings, showing work to date on the proposed new highway layout and expanded pedestrian areas, as well the location of parking spaces, cycle routes and delivery bays for businesses.
In particular, there will be an opportunity to see and comment on the types of materials being considered for pavements, kerbs and road surfaces, along with examples of new street furniture, such as benches and lamp posts.
As part of the detailed design phase for the Town Centre Improvement Scheme, we have already begun approaching businesses, traders and other stakeholders directly for their feedback on the latest detail designs. People will also be able to view the scheme designs and comment online from 14th November by visiting: www.rutland.gov.uk/oakhamtowncentre
The information gathered will then be used to help create a final detailed design, which will be presented to Full Council for approval in March 2018.
