Station gateway

Work is under way to redesign and redevelop the area around Weston train station, which offers the opportunity to create a better ‘gateway’ to the town, whether arriving by train or by road, and to free up land for the development of new good quality housing.

An exciting new housing scheme for the Sunnyside Road and Locking Road car parks has been proposed in conjunction with Homes England (HE). The HE site will see a new development that will dramatically improve the entrance to the town centre, offering approximately 400 high quality, contemporary homes including apartments and houses in with work planned to start 2020. Consultation has taken place, with the outline plan to be submitted before the end of 2019.

As well as providing new housing, and potentially shops and offices, the redevelopment of the Station gateway will make a significant difference to first impressions of the town and link the arrival space to the heart of the town centre.
