The town centre in Tunbridge Wells gets an overhaul

by Paul Addison on April 5, 2016 No comments

The Tunbridge Wells borough council have approved proposals for a £70m overhaul of the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre.

The overhaul will include the following:

  • Demolition of some already excising buildings
  • This will add 3,395 square meters of space
  • New shops
  • New restaurants
  • A large rooftop cinema (8 screens)

The locals of Tunbridge Wells have been invited to see the proposed plans and share their opinions on the regeneration of the shopping centre.

The Centre Manager, Nicky Blanchard, says she hopes that proposed would improve the already successful town centre by creating a larger variety for the local people.

Nicky Blanchard has said:

“For Tunbridge Wells to thrive it needs to retain a vibrant retail and leisure offer that meets the needs of local people as well as the many tourists that visit. We believe our plans focus on offering the type of space required to attract the type of stores our customers want to see.  We want to play a leading role in supporting the town centre by encouraging more people to visit more often.”

Some of the proposals are listed bellow:

  • A new state of the art digital, multi-screen cinema on the roof of the shopping centre to create an exciting new leisure destination.
  • New restaurants and cafes
  • Large new shops, making better use of existing space and enabling Royal Victoria Place to attract major new fashion brands to the town centre.
  • A brand new entrance at the eastern end of Calverley Road close to Camden Road aimed at increasing the number of shoppers visiting this area of the town centre.
  • A measured refurbishment of the former Friendly Society Building on Camden Road, taking care to retain and respect its original features
  • Development of the corner of Calverley Road and Camden Road with high quality new buildings, new public areas and more space for pedestrians
