  16. 16. Hornsea Renaissance EconomicAssessment & Masterplan
  17. 17. Masterplan Strategy Reuniting the core areas ………..Brief Historical Background The design philosophy proposes to reunite the three core areasHistorically water has been one of the key defining elements for (Mere, town centre and sea front) of Hornsea. This will be doneHornsea’s growth and will continue to be so. In 1854 the urban fabric through the consolidation and reinforcement of activities andand spatial form of Hornsea was concentrated around the north east physical form of the town within these three areas, as well as thosecorner of the Mere along what is now Seaton Rd and Southgate as areas appropriate for conservation and preservation. This includeswell as along Newbegin. By 1909 there had been a pull towards the reinforcing and strengthening the historic street pattern and generalsea along Eastgate and Cliff Rd. Today Hornsea has established itself urban street grain, and to use this consolidation of activities andbetween the two, with the Mere forming its western boundary and the physical form to redefine the core areas into the following:sea its eastern boundary.1854 1909 2006 • Old Town, The Mere – core historic / rural recreational offer; • Town Centre, Newbegin – core retail offer; • Sea front, Promenade – core recreational offer: • North Promenade – informal recreation; • Central Promenade – recreational focal point; These diagrams clearly illustrate the growth & spread of Hornsea from 1854 • South Promenade – formal recreation through to present dayDue to the pull of the two areas of water Hornsea has grown into threeclear core areas - the old town (Mere), leisure area (sea front) andbetween these the town centre (Newbegin). However, the transition ofthe urban grain between these areas has been lost over time andbecause of this there is little to encourage public flow between them.

  18. 18. Area 4 – Broadway/Central Promenade Ideas generated from stakeholder workshopsIssues• This area to the immediate south of the Promenade Scheme provides some continuity of design and appearance.• Central Promenade accommodates a number of facilities which although having dual community and tourism functions, predominantly serve the tourism and day-trip market including the Leisure Centre which provides a wet weather facility, tourist facilities, car parking, restaurants and arcades.• Proposals to relocate the Floral Hall from the North Promenade to this site to form a central leisure hub to the promenade sea front will be the driving force for future redevelopment.• Within the Floral Hall redevelopment the provision of flexible space for art exhibitions, and youth activities should be considered. View down promenade Parade of shops/outlets• Opportunities should be taken to improve the quality and legibility of the public realm and to tidy up and create better legibility at the end of the TransPennine Trail, to provide a far more memorable sense of arrival/departure.• The proposals should provide a wider more inviting public street frontage by opening up the wall between the leisure area and promenade. New street furniture and signage along the View across leisure centre car park Leisure centre promenade, within the leisure area and along New Road should form and identify the transition and linkage between the South Promenade and Central promenade and between the sea front (Central Promenade / leisure core) and Newbegin (town centre / retail core).• Planning permission has been granted for ground floor retail/restaurant and residential above development on the site of the former Luigi’s restaurant.

  20. 20. Area 4 – Broadway/Central Promenade Visualisations…… Entrance from promenade to the new Floral HallUrban Design / Landscape PrinciplesFuture Proposals• The character of the Central Promenade as Hornsea’s leisure core should be reinnforced with the new Floral Hall being located adjacent to the leisure centre presenting an active leisure frontage to the promenade;• The new Floral Hall needs to respond to the grain of the Central Promenade, in particular to its award winning vernacular. A maximum of 2 commercial type floors would be appropriate;• The new Floral Hall needs to be developed to provide a focal point building to the promenade.Street Scene• The new Floral Hall development should unite the public realm between New Road and the Central Promenade, bringing visual and functional order to this vital space at the convergence of the town Location of proposed Floral Hall centre and sea front;• Surfacing to this area should be a resin bound gravel which reflects New floral hall location the character of the central promenade;• Street furniture and signage should reinforce the narrative of Hornsea’s sea front having one long promenade, while rationalisation of the various elements will help movement, improve views and define access between the town centre and sea front;• Extend new hard surfacing along New Road to link the town centre through to the sea front; and pick up key elements such as Memorial Gardens.Open Space• A new open space needs to be created adjacent to the development View of current Floral Hall location & proposed location of the Floral Hall to strengthen the link between this leisure core area, the promenade and the leisure centre.
