  • Identify detail

    Community identification and connection to the Beaumaris Concourse is strong, through the consultation we found some people meet friends daily! Below are the initiatives to help to strengthen the village character and make it uniquely Beaumaris:

    • consistent, timeless paving
    • primary gateway marker
    • secondary gateway treatment (e.g. art to blank walls, lighting)
    • pedestrian priority treatment
    • community exhibition opportunities.

  • Central carpark

    From the consultation it was clear that we needed to make it easier for people to get around, that included making it easier to walk, cycle and drive around the Concourse. Here is what is proposed:

    • make it a nicer place to walk and ride
    • smooth, clear footpaths, tactile paving
    • room for mobility scooters, and sufficient bike parking
    • create a pedestrian link between East Concourse to Concourse Green
    • improve the central car park

    Central Carpark Option

    Over 60% of community supported a change in this area.The option proposed creates a dedicated pathway that protects pedestrians from vehicle traffic. This option reduces the number of car park spaces lost from 15 spaces (in previous option) down to 6 spaces. It also creates a garden bed under the trees, supporting the growth of this mature trees.

        Option 1 pedestrian path
        Opportunity to improve the pedestrian connection, functionality and amenity of the Central Car Park.

        Three options to make it easier to move through the car park on foot while retaining the existing trees

        • Option 1 is a clearly designated path within a shared space for cars and pedestrians
        • Option 2 is a separate path for pedestrians along the centre of the car park under the trees requires the loss of 15 carparking spaces.
        • Option 3 is a separate path for pedestrians along the centre of the car park under the trees requires a loss of 8 carparking spaces.

        Option 3 -  Under Tree Pedestrian Path and Angled Car Parking on One Side of Central Car Park

        • A separate, dedicated path for pedestrians down one side of the central median, under the trees

        • Conversion to 45 degree parking and a one way system on the side with the path for ease of parking

        • Retain 90 degree parking and a two way system on the other side

        • Complement existing trees with low garden bed planting in the central median

        • Only possible with a loss of 8 car parking spaces
