The Public Realm and Movement Strategy

The Public Realm and Movement Strategy was created at considerable expense to improve  the quality of environmental design and management, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists, on city centre streets.

This strategy was generally well received and made a promising start but seems to have run out of money and political support.

In consequence our city centre still fails to meet standards which are commonplace among European peer cities and well short of what one would expect from one of the few cities in the world to have been awarded World Heritage Status.
