Planning rroposals for North Kingston around the old gasworks were opened up for consultation this week.
The plans include a school, new housing, a park and better pedestrian and cycle routes to the riverside and town centre.
Proposals being consulted on would mean closing Kingsgate Road and diverting traffic along Seven Kings Road to Sury Basin. However, members of the public are being asked to engage with the consultation so they can help shape the council’s brief.
Councillor Simon James, Kingston Council’s Lead Member for Planning Policy, said:
“We want to transform this largely derelict part of Kingston to address the poor quality of what is an important gateway to the town centre.”
Members of the public can see the draft planning brief and ask questions at Kingston College’s Richmond Road centre on Tuesday 1 October from 5.30–9pm, and copies are available at Kingston and Tudor libraries and the council’s offices at Guildhall 2, High Street, Kingston.
The consultation closes on Tuesday 15 October.
