Regeneration of Downend Centre

In partnership with South Gloucestershire Council, Downend Centre was regenerated in 2005. Part of this scheme was a complete repaving of the area and the installation of numerous seats, litter bins, benches and cycle parking stands throughout the parish. Street lighting was updated, including the installation of a light in the lane by the Britannia Building Society. The toilets also had a complete refurbishment, which included a fully accessible toilet for use by disabled persons. The Scout War Memorial was cleaned and repaired. The Turnpike Trust Marker along Cleeve Wood Road (on the bridge at the bottom of the hill) and the Mileage Marker at Downend Road (opposite Downend Cricket Ground) have both been fully restored.

The photograph shows the lighting column purchased by the Parish Council now ensuring good lighting in the lane leading to the Co-op car park.
