The site is surrounded by destination attractions, including the Cinema, Library, Town Hall and existing Theatre. This area would further benefit from the proposed Leisure Centre and upgraded Theatre.
The site can be broken into smaller enclaves that would benefit from separately defined entrances for each typology. The theatre would benefit by positioning its entrance along the Cultural Link. The area directly in-front of this entrance is partially pedestrianised and could be transformed into a pedestrian only zone. The leisure entrance would be best positioned along the northern boundary. Here the entrance would have a frontage that has a clear public connection and sight line from the high street. The residential entrance would benefit from being positioned to the south west, where this creates a vantage point away from the town hall.
