Improvements to King Street, Knutsford - archived material

We are looking into possible improvements to King Street, Knutsford, developing the work by Knutsford Town Centre Working Group in August 2012.

The identified issues include:

  • narrow pavements
  • vehicular dominated urban environment
  • poor pedestrian priority
  • limited ‘green’ infrastructure within King Street
  • mismatch of street furniture and lighting
  • low quality surfaces
  • limited opportunity to sit and rest

Proposed improvements to King Street, Knutsford

The scheme aims to:

  • enhance the vitality of the town centre and increase retail footfall
  • support the visitor economy
  • create an accessible environment for pedestrians and mobility impaired
  • maintain as much on-street parking as possible
  • maintain vehicular access at all times
  • conserve and enhance the historic character of the street

The scheme will use high quality materials,within the scheme budget, to complement the unique local architectural and historic setting. This combination will improve the pedestrian environment and experience and will create a vibrant public space. We want to enhance King Street for all users and accommodate some on street parking.

The high quality materials could include:

  • grey , buff or pink/ orange coloured flagstones for footpaths to complement the architectural and historic setting of King Street
  • road surface - grey, dark grey or pink / orange coloured stone to conceal marks made by vehicular traffic
  • white kerbs for clear distinction between footway and carriageway
