Banners showing the development plans for Gloucester city centre released

Posted on 18th December 2014

The planned Kings Quarter Development project in Gloucester city centre is edging closer after banners showing the latest ideas were released.


Gloucester, which is close to holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean, is already a popular place to visit in the region, but the Kings Quarter Development will see the city centre undergo major refurbishment and potentially create even more interest in it.

Now Gloucester City Council has unveiled some of the project’s latest designs on banners that have been put up around the city, including Market Place, Grosvenor House and Bentinck House.

The banners have been unveiled following a recent announcement that Gloucester City Council had been successful in buying two iconic buildings that will be a part of the project. The project, which is set to begin in 2016, will see new shops and restaurants built, as well as a brand new bus station.

Speaking to the Gloucester Citizen, Paul James, the leader of Gloucester City Council, said, “There is still a great deal of work to do with our development partner but this deal signals our intent. There is real momentum behind Kings Quarter now and I am increasingly optimistic about the benefits it will bring.”
