New square for old friary site

Norfolk residents to get a new public square

Norwich residents have more reason than most to put their faith in landscape architecture after a design for a new public square on the site of a 14th-century friary won over planners. The project close to Norwich Castle will include the space, which will stand next to the edge of the former friary precinct. It will include trees and hard paving around new buildings. A tower the height of those of churches in the city centre will stand by the entrance of the car-free open space and the rest of the square will be enclosed by new buildings. Walkways leading to from the space will link it to the rest of the surrounding areas. The £10m scheme includes offices and 130 homes. Hudson Architects has designed the project for Countryside Properties. Building dates are being firmed up and details of involvement of landscape architects have not been revealed.
