Based on the experiences, insights and ideas collected in last year’s survey about what it’s like getting around in Arthurs Hill & Fenham, your local Streets for People Reference Group have worked with an Urban Designer to come up with a set of proposals to address the issues that were raised last year. We are calling this our Neighbourhood Plan.

The Arthurs Hill & Fenham neighbourhood plan includes six broad proposals. These are:

  • Creating a new east-west cycle route, between Two Ball Lonnen and Wellington Street (via Lonnen Avenue, Cedar Road and Studley Terrace)
  • Improving north-south cycle and walking links between Cowgate and the West Road (via Kingsway and Gowland Avenue)
  • Improving north-south cycle and walking links around Nuns Moor and Arthurs Hill (e.g. on Fenham Hall Drive, Dilston Road and Gainsborough Grove)
  • Improving Stanhope Street for cycling and walking
  • Improving road safety around local schools
  • Small neighbourhood improvements (e.g. improving the green space on Hadrian Road/Hoyle Avenue, and removing some traffic from some back lanes)

To find out more about these proposals, you can click on the link below to download the plan and find out more about each proposal. When you are ready to give us your feedback, you can do so by completing a survey, which will be made available on this page shortly.
