The Albion Square Project

A MESSAGE FROM COUNCILLOR TIMOTHY HUXTABLE,
CABINET MEMBER (TRANSPORT, ENVIRONMENT AND REGENERATION)

“The Albion Square project seeks to bring forward environmental enhancements at the junction of Carver Street, Legge Lane and Albion Street in the core of the Jewellery Quarter Conservation Area. The project is to be funded from a S106 agreement which was secured specifically for this purpose and has a total cost of £271,474. Designs have been prepared in line with the feedback gathered from previous consultation with residents, ward members and the business community. The improvements will create an attractive public space using traditional Jewellery Quarter materials. Safety and accessibility will be improved for pedestrians by extending the footway and creating prominent crossing points. The Albion Square full business case, currently on route to Cabinet Committee Procurement for approval, plans the implementation of the improvements starting July 2011. This would result in the scheme being completed during October 2011. Across the city there are a number of further developments that will help shape our neighbourhoods and boost their economies.”
