The work looked at how Royston could progress as a neighbourhood over the next 10-20 years, building on the achievements of all Royston’s local organisations, several of which celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2014.

An initial consultation and engagement stage was held during the summer of 2014, with follow up sessions helping to build up this Vision and Action Plan.

Kevin Murray Associates who carried out the community consultation presented the Vision and Action Plan, its objectives which were drawn from the consultation, and the proposed next steps to the Royston community in December 2014.

A Sign-Up Ceremony also took place for the local community and the Royston Strategy Group partners and stakeholders to show their commitment to ensuring the shared vision for the regeneration of Royston is delivered.

Kevin Murray Associates were supported in the community engagement and planning by Willie Miller Urban Design who helped with the urban design and development and Benton Scott Simmons who helped with the landscape and environmental areas of the Vision and Action Plan.

Summary :- This report is based on two workshops facilitated by Kevin Murray Associates for Rosemount Development Trust to review and revisit the Royston Vision and Strategy. The two workshops were firstly with the Board of Rosemount Development Trust, and secondly with members of the Royston Strategy Group.
The workshops reviewed the Vision and Strategy, discussed what had been achieved and considered how priorities may have been reshaped or refined in the interim period.
This report considers three core areas in Royston, around which the main parts of discussion in the workshops were focussed, and suggests ways forward for each of the areas.

Summary :- This project is a continuation and delivery of the Royston Vision and Strategy – a key objective is to “Move beyond just ‘homes’ to strengthen the whole neighbourhood quality and feel”. Another key objective: “Strengthen Royston’s physical connections, whilst reducing the impact of traffic. Raise the quality and ease with which people move around Royston and travel to surrounding areas and the city centre”. A third relevant key objective is to create “more choice for local people – in housing, shops, services, transport and access to jobs”.
