New Union Square plans unveiled 

New plans for empty town centre sites off Fleming Way - HAVE YOUR SAY 
 
Developers of the regeneration of a key site within Swindon town centre are inviting you to have your say this week.
 
Plans for Union Square, the area between the railway station and The Parade, will be on show for comment on Friday 4 March (2pm – 8pm) and on Saturday 5 March (10am – 2pm) at the Swindon Central Library. 
 
Proposed plans:
an artists impression of how Union Square will look

The project team for Union Square, led by Muse, was appointed in 2008 following an extensive competition to masterplan the site, which is in the sole ownership of the public sector.
 
Forward Swindon, which is responsible for delivering economic growth in the borough, is coordinating the role of the public sector in the scheme.
 
What's planned

The plan includes public spaces; a large garden square (Union Square); high quality office buildings; stylish new homes; retail, restaurant and leisure facilities; a relocated bus station and much more. 

“Union Square has regeneration at its heart and will provide a vibrant and genuine extension to the town centre," commented Doug Finlay, for Muse Developments.
 
"It will give the people of Swindon a new area to meet, shop, work and live – a place that people want to part of.”

Have your say

Swindon people can have their say on the emerging master plan on:
Friday 4 March (2pm – 8pm)
Saturday 5 March (10am – 2pm)
 
at Swindon Central Library, Regent Circus, SN1 1QG.

At these events attendees will be able to view the plans, discuss the proposals with the project team and have their say about the scheme.
