Design Guide

Newport and Ryde

A design guide for commercial frontages is being developed 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. We want your views!

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.
