Plaza for the people

A TRIAL public plaza on Grosvenor Road opened this week.

Traffic will be banned until October 16 to see if it’s a good spot for a permanent public space connected to Beaufort Street.

The strip needs more places to sit, although closing Grosvenor drew concerns from business owners that tricky carpark access might send shoppers elsewhere.

Until October 16 it’s completely closed, and then until November 14 it’s a partial closure to trial a “shared space” setup.

The council will decide whether one of those could work as a permanent public space.

Feedback via or face-to-face with the surveyors who are roaming the site with tablets.
