Concept Designs

We Need You!

Tell us what you think. 

Sustrans DIY Streets team has been asking for your views about living or working in Marks Gate since January 2015.

Now we are inviting you to once again give your feedback. This time the DIY Streets team have created a display of concept designs, which detail the changes we hope to implement in Marks Gate over the summer 2016. These ideas are displayed in the Marks Gate Community Centre until the New Year.  A comment box has been provided for residents to feedback their thoughts and ideas.

If you can’t travel to the community centre, please see the designs below and then give your views by contacting the DIY Streets Project Coordinator Louise Gold on: 07879 809 169 or

Rose Lane

Rose Lane carriageway is raised to give a sense of shared spare and remind cars to slow. The Yellow Brick Road provides children with a path from school to the park.

rose lane shop fronts

The Yellow Brick Road creates a feature with added seating and trees along Rose Lane outside the shops.

new school entrance

A new side entrance and paved area with seating outside Marks Gate Junior School will allow parents to wait and congregate away from the grass verge and traffic.

Infant school

A garden wall will replace the guardrail and allow parents to sit while waiting for their children. The Yellow Brick Road will lead the children to the park and provide a feature outside the school.

Billet Road-Rose Lane

Narrowing of roads with trees will make crossing easier and will remind drivers they are entering a residential area and should slow down. The trees also act as a gateway feature creating a theme throughout Marks Gate.

There will also be trees narrowing the entrance to and junctions along Padnall Road.

Further maps detailing the concept designs can be found in the display at Marks Gate Community Centre.
