In November 2019 the High Streets & Town Centres (HS&TC) team shared draft proposals for Roman Road West’s Regeneration programme (funded by section 106) and invited comments and feedback from local residents, businesses, market traders and stakeholders.

During 2020 the HS&TC team worked with Jan Kattein Architects to take on board comments from local community groups to develop the detailed public realm redesign for Globe Town market square.

The redesign for the market square provides space for the market to be relaunched and enable the local community to hold events.
