A underused space in the centre of Grimsby is being transformed into a new public space, with work being done throughout 2023.
The new designs have been drawn up by Arup Landscape Design, and incorporate input from local people, including children and young people, from recent consultations and engagement, in terms of what they want to see in the area.
The new designs will incorporate a lot more green space and planting, as well as providing new seating, lighting, security and a flexible event space with improved infrastructure to support future events and activities. There is also space for outdoor café seating at the entrance to Freshney Place.
The remodelled area in the centre of Grimsby is being funded as one of the projects included in the Town Deal, the money for which was secured in 2020.
