We have been working with Nottingham City Council to develop design ideas for a future pedestrianisation scheme along Collin Street. Currently the 4-lane, one-way road, which runs behind the existing Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, is heavily trafficked and serves a number of city centre bus services. As part of comprehensive redevelopment proposals for the area, the council plans to re-route traffic south of the railway station to be able to pedestrianise Collin St.
Our vision for the refurbishment of the street includes high-quality paving and seating areas, landmark ‘deer’ sculptures, a ‘river’ water feature, and retail kiosks in ‘tree trunks’ linked at high level by a green ‘tree canopy’. The design is influenced by the history of the site, which lies close to the old River Leen and Nottingham Castle’s former deer park. As part of a wider masterplanning vision, the scheme links to proposals for a potential future Broadmarsh tram stop, the relocated Central College off Canal Street, and across Maid Marian Way to Castle Road.
