Regent Circus, Swindon, is a proposed "shared space" improvement scheme which forms the main pedestrian link between the re-development of former Swindon College site and the town centre.
The part of the scheme addressed by this Quality Audit concerns the area of public realm fronting the proposed retail development and Regent Circus.
The 'Quality Audit Day' was hosted by Swindon Borough Council and ran by TMS acting as Quality Auditors for the scheme. The event was attended by around 20 people representing a variety of street users needs.
The day involved presentations from the scheme designers, road safety auditors and an outline of what the Quality Audit process was trying to achieve in terms of balancing the needs of all street users, safety, visual quality and sense of place. This was followed by a number of working groups on each of these issues. A lot of useful feedback on the proposals was gained and incorporated into the Quality Audit report.
