People First Zone


The People First Zone seeks to create an environment in the town centre that puts the needs of people first. We are aiming to create high-quality spaces where people can move around freely and easily, stop and browse in shop windows or chat to a friend.

Design Guide

Newport and Ryde

A design guide for commercial frontages has been created to help people restore traditional shopfronts and create frontages on modern buildings that are of a high standard of design and complement nearby historic buildings, creating a coherent, interesting, diverse and attractive streetscape.

Newport Shopfront Improvement Scheme


Support is available to help restore historic shopfronts in the town centre. We aim to work proactively with building owners to develop improvement schemes.

Back to Life


No-one likes to see empty buildings. This project will work to bring disused or underused buildings back into use, improving the vibrancy of the town centre and protecting heritage buildings.
