Droitwich Spa Public Realm Enhancement and Network Improvements

High Street, Droitwich Spa

Major Infrastructure and Improvement Schemes

The scheme was formulated following a public consultation exercise in 2014.

The High Street was identified as a priority for improvement by respondents although it was clear that opinions were divided on whether the High Street should be pedestrianised or not.

After further consideration it was determined that the High Street should remain open to vehicles but that it must be a priority to improve the pavements for pedestrians and less mobile visitors.

A scheme was therefore devised that retains vehicular access and parking but also includes new block paving footways and a raised table to make crossing the road easier. The road will be resurfaced and new street furniture installed.

The work started in the Summer of 2017 and were completed by the end of November 2017.
