PLANS to redesign part of the town centre have been unveiled.

The Greenwich Council plans include pedestrianisation schemes and landscaping improvements to Cutty Sark Gardens.

An exhibition of the proposals will be held at Devenport House, King William Walk, Greenwich, from 10am until 8pm from this Saturday to next Monday.

Key features of the pedestrianisation scheme include a one-way clockwise gyratory on Creek Road, Greenwich Church Street, Greenwich High Road and Norman Road.

The proposals to improve Cutty Sark Gardens include better landscaping and improved lighting and planting.

Greenwich council also intend to open up the space for more community events and performances. Chris Roberts, leader of Greenwich Council, said: "As a world heritage site, Maritime Greenwich receives around nine million visitors a year and we need to ensure the town is a fitting place for the increased numbers of people we are expecting in the run up to, and during, the 2012 Games.

"The views of local people are vital in helping us determine the priorities for improvement and I urge local people to visit the exhibition and give their views."

More than 500 people responded to the initial consultation in December last year on plans to close part of the town centre to traffic.

Details of both schemes and an online questionnaire are available at www.greenwich.gov.uk/haveyoursay.
