Bradford 'City Village' and the 'Top of Town Public Realm Improvements Project' Community Engagement Programme

Purpose of the consultation

Let us know your priorities for public realm improvements in Top of Town, Bradford


Whether you live here, work here, or visit frequently, your views are important and will help Bradford Council deliver public realm improvements in the Top of Town and wider City Village area.


Public realm, sometimes known as public space, refers to all outdoor areas within towns or cities. Areas of public realm include all streets, squares and other public areas where anyone is free to walk. Public realm is important because it can bring communities together, make places more attractive to residents, businesses and visitors, and contribute to wider environmental efforts.


Enhanced outdoor spaces in the Top of Town will complement the wider City Village plans. The City Village proposals are a 10-year regeneration plan to deliver a green, healthy and sustainable neighbourhood at the heart of Bradford city centre. To make the most of City Village, funding has been awarded to improve public open spaces including streets, urban spaces and squares (known as public realm) in the Top of Town and wider City Village area.


This public realm improvements project is running alongside the Bradford City Centre Townscape Heritage Scheme (THS), which considers heritage and historic buildings in the city centre. The THS scheme is complementary to the Top of Town improvements project and has the joint aim to create a high quality and attractive environment in central Bradford.


Following this consultation Bradford Council will review all feedback and create a series of public realm improvement projects.
