The Connecting Leicester – Old Town regeneration is a series of linked schemes to transform the public realm to encourage access and enhance the character and quality of the buildings.
The project seeks to create the conditions which make an area attractive to visitors, residents, businesses, shoppers and investors. The Old Town area contains a wealth of historic and heritage assets.
Even before the discovery of the remains of Richard III in the area, its potential for regeneration was recognised.
The project is part of the wider vision of Connecting Leicester, including pedestrianisation, a new gateway to the city and and greater connectivity between the old town and the retail core.
It includes the creation of Jubilee Square and Cathedral Gardens, plus streetscape improvements for Guildhall Lane, Applegate, St Martins, Peacock Lane and Southgates.
The area has become a major new tourist destination following the discovery of the remains of King Richard III and the opening of the new visitor centre.
High quality architectural and feature lighting creates a new night time environment whilst also encouraging a feeling of greater safety. The projects have seen a reduction in vacant properties in the area.
