Heritage Action Zone Public Realm Improvements Revealed in Gloucester

McGregor Coxall’s Historic England Heritage Action Zone Cathedral Quarter public realm improvement project on Westgate Street in Gloucester, UK, has been fully installed.

The initiative creates inviting spaces for people to pause and enjoy historic views on the street, complimented by and nestled within biodiverse planting schemes which will grow and flourish in the coming months.

The Streetlife planters feature single and multi-stem trees and biodiverse plant species and include a mix of bench edges and conical planters installed alongside existing benches. New benches are inscribed with historical tales of Gloucester, and carefully situated alongside the street’s new interpretation plaques, which include the addition of ten Beatrix Potter mouse trail plaques. These elements highlight the street and Cathedral Quarter’s rich historic narrative.

McGregor Coxall Associate Úna Breathnach hIfearnáin-Taoka visited to inspect the completed works and the team look forward to returning later this Summer for a celebratory event unveiling the revitalised Westgate street.
