The City of London is delivering a new public square in Mitre Place in Aldgate Ward (separate to the adjacent Aldgate Square also being delivered by the City), and in conjunction with the private development at Creechurch Place improving the streets in the area.
Work is coming along well and now around 15% completed; paving works have been completed in Creechurch Lane and Mitre Street, works continue to facilitate a new ‘toucan’ crossing on the north side of Dukes Place and investigations to ensure the new vehicle turnaround in Creechurch Place have begun.
In order to deliver an enhanced public realm, the City is proposing to fully pedestrianise Mitre Square. As a result of the changes vehicles will no longer be able to park in Mitre Square, and the two existing disabled parking bays only will be relocated to Mitre Street and Creechurch Lane.
The small number of parents for Sir John Cass School who currently use Mitre Square to wait to pick up children will be provided with permits to wait on Mitre Street for a short period of time. Parents will be contacted directly in regards to this.
