Campus West Car Park
Campus West is a key source of entertainment and recreation in the town centre.
It's a family friendly space with the Welwyn Garden City Cinema, Roller City, Soft Play City and Humphrey's Cafe and Bar. The library is also located here. Car parking is vital to the prosperity of the centre and the adjoining businesses and Oaklands College.
Catalyst to development
Campus West Car Park will serve as the catalyst to the wider WGC 2120 project, we will increase the capacity of the existing car parking area to allow the phased development of other opportunity sites. The target uplift is estimated as an increase of between 180 to 360 spaces. We have begun the design process to see how best we can consolidate parking in this location, while also creating a high quality and safe environment and respect the surrounding uses and heritage of the town.
Upcoming public engagement session
We plan to hold public consultations with the public in October to present designs for the proposed deck. Due to existing Coronavirus (COVID-19) regulations, we will be unable to organise these in our usual face to face format. Instead we will provide a virtual exhibition on the project page and a physical exhibition in Campus West. There will still be the opportunity to give us feedback on the proposals through the online exhibition.
Further information will be provided closer to the time through our social media channels and in the winter issue of Life Magazine.
