From Parking Bay to "PARKLET"

The Big Recovery Plan for Bangor Town Centre:

Ards and North Down Borough Council in collaboration with the Bangor Town Advisory Group have produced a substantial new plan to take Bangor forward from the woes of 2020.
The aim is to encourage a sense of community by creating safe social spaces for people to meet, eat and drink in relative shelter and comfort. The concept has already been floated in several UK cities including Belfast with great success.
As well as the parking bay “parklets” the McKee Clock Plaza will also see permanent new canopies with tables and chairs seating up to 50 people.
The Council, working with the Town Advisory Group, have submitted proposals for 3 Parklets in Bangor. These being at Abbey Street, Main Street and High Street.

High Street

 

Lower High Street is essentially occupied by hospitality outlets so it is a perfect place to accomodate visitors in an outdoor setting.

Abbey Street

 

Abbey Street has a range of cafes and licensed restaurants overlooking pleasent parklands. It has a carpark and a wide pavements on the south side so plenty of space for everyone.

Upper Abbey Street (the Gateway to the town centre) has a mixture of restaurants, cafes, retail and services but often lacks footfall. It is hoped that a parklet may help to reanimate the area.
