The Council is supporting progress on central city barrier sites.
The Council has a three-step approach in dealing with sites that are considered to be barriers to the regeneration of the central city. These sites are referred to as barrier sites.
If left unrepaired, they can lead to negative perceptions of the city for visitors and investors and, in some cases, they disrupt the operation of the transport network.
We also want to encourage action to tidy up cleared vacant sites and gravel car parks. Litter, unmanaged vegetation and unmaintained hoardings paint a poor image of the city and undermine perceptions of personal safety, especially at night.
