The District Centre

The model for the district centre is the traditional high street – designed with reference to places such as Market Harborough. The focus will be on pedestrians and cyclists.

The centre will include shops, community facilities, homes, small offices and work spaces. It will provide for the weekly needs of new residents and, importantly, is easily accessible to existing neighbours, especially in Thurmaston.

The main features of this area include:

  • Inspirational and attractive space, modelled upon a traditional high street
  • A range of commercial and community floorspace, including a sports centre and foodstore
  • An accessible, pedestrian focused High Street and cross street, with a central square
