A project to build a new coach station and car park in the centre of Plymouth has managed to secure the necessary funding, a news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The £4.17million development will provide a new facility for long distance coaches and a surface-level car park with 100 spaces on the site of the former Mayflower West car park in the city’s West End.
It will also include an indoor waiting area in the former Lloyds Bank building, with toilets, seating, ‘real time’ information screens, a ticket office and a food, drink and newsagent concession, as well as a sheltered outside waiting area with information screens, luggage lockers and a customer help point, a passenger drop off/pick up area, improved paving, CCTV security, lighting and planting and a drop-off bay for blue badge holders.
Subject to planning permission being granted British Land will contribute £2.1 million towards the design and build of the new coach hub and car park. The remaining £2.07 million will be funded from the Council’s capital budget.
