The list of projects likely to be compelted before the Grandstand increases by 1

The first significant steps are being taken on the £100million revamp of Plymouth’s railway station with plans to upgrade the concourse and knock down buildings to make way for a new car park.

Plymouth City Council’s Cabinet being asked to approve a £26million funding package – when it meets on September 11, 2018 – which will facilitate a phased upgrade to the station concourse and customer facilities.

The aim is to make it quicker and easier to use the ticket gates and improve the shops on the concourse and platforms.

A second phase would see further improvements to the concourse, including the entrance and front of the station.

A design workshop involving the council, GWR, Network Rail and the University of Plymouth will draw up plans.

And also in September, a planning application for “change of use” is to be submitted for the towering Intercity House so it can be “entirely rejuvenated and restyled”.

Cabinet will discuss demolishing the Rail Incident Safety Centre (RISC) building on the east side of the railway station to enable a new multi-storey car park to be built.

This 469 space lot will have almost double the capacity of the existing car park, under used and unsuitable for many modern cars, which will be demolished.

Also in the pipeline are plans to replace and modernise station staff accommodation, and “significant new public space works” including a direct pedestrian link to North Cross and the city centre.

A new-look entrance off North Cross will improve pedestrian access to the station.


Tudor Evans, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: “This kick-starts a pledge we made to Plymouth in May: that we would deliver a new gateway to Plymouth at the train station with a new entrance overlooking the city, a new car park and more spaces for business and retail.

“We’re leading on this regeneration, moving from the drawing board and concepts to planning real change on the ground.

From What a friend told me its pretty much planned what they want to do, just need councils permission then it should go ahead,
Tbh the ticket barriers aren't exactly adequate for entering and leaving the platforms when its busy,

Plannig application also in for the university for a change of use and 7 year lease for the old post office sorting building down below the station at Pennycomequick. The university are flexing their muscles. Wonder if they'll take over the maintenance and use of the presently being refurbished sports pitches in Central Park. Just how has the "university industry" suddenly rocketed to the biggest kid on the block and why ?
