The Golden Square will be a new public square located in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, next to the Chamberlain Clock Tower and the Big Peg office building.
Land in front of the Big Peg on the corner of Waterstone Lane and Vyse Street will become home to a new square, which the council expects to be a popular meeting place as well as a venue for concerts, markets and other events.
As part of the advance works for the Golden Square development, trees located in front of the Big Peg will be taken down this Sunday, 7 April. The work is happening on a Sunday to minimise disruption to the businesses in the vicinity, as the Big Peg car park will be clear and most of the shops along The Big Peg frontage closed.
The trees will be removed over the course of the day leaving approximately 750 mm of tree trunk above the ground, as there is no need to remove the roots and surrounding ground until the main contract for developing The Golden Square starts.
We’re not sure when the main works will start yet but as soon as we get information about this, we’ll post it here.
