TGP have been appointed by Falkirk Council to prepare detailed public realm proposals for Falkirk town centre. The design objective is to bring the flair back into the centre of the town through streetscape improvements with design concepts drawing on the historic past of Falkirk. The High Street of Falkirk is the old market place where the steeple is situated with adjacent wynds and closes. To highlight the historic and listed buildings, the footpaths will be laid with ‘Caithness’ Stone slabs and the road will be resurfaced. The nearly forgotten closes will be lit up as well as resurfaced to improve their character and create a new welcoming access to the centre. These will be marked with an engraved stone and an arch feature to provide information and encourage access.
