Forest Road Corridor



The Forest Road Corridor has been identified as a Strategic Location in the Council’s Emerging new Local Plan.

The Forest Road Corridor Framework sets out a vision for the area and will provide informal planning guidance. 

We intend for this Framework to be a live document that will be updated regularly.

The Vision

The Corridor will become a vibrant and welcoming place that compliments the functions of neighbouring centres enabling them to thrive.

Development will support the roll out of safe, well-designed, sustainable public realm improvements, the creation of new routes, and new and improved public spaces for people to gather, enjoy and relax.

Regeneration of the area will also provide a robust response to the Climate Emergency. The Town Hall Campus, known as 'Fellowship Square', will become the focus of transformational redevelopment and act as a catalyst for the long-term regeneration of the area.
