The Northern Gateway Character Area of Innovation focuses on the part of the town centre between the railway station around Tayfen Road, and primarily the corridors along St Andrews Street and St Johns Street. The Gateway has a mixed character with edge-of-centre uses along Tayfen Road, car showrooms and so on, contrasting with the residential character closer to the heart of the town centre. Key opportunities focus on better connecting the railway station with the rest of the town centre, linking into proposals for St Andrews Quarter and the area around Station Hill.
Borough council, county council, working with Network Rail, local stakeholders and landowners.
Enhance and encourage pedestrians and cyclists to move between the main town centre and the railway station, with a focus on St Andrews Street and St Johns Street, whilst maintaining access for cars. Provide a more attractive pedestrian environment along Tayfen Road to improve the gateway to the town centre.
Introduce new uses that will better front onto streets and spaces and create a more active, attractive and safer environment.
Through enhancements improve the image and character of this part of the town centre, making it a more attractive and welcoming gateway for Bury St Edmunds.
Aspirations at The Northern Gateway will contribute to meeting MAP objectives 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
