Thetford Market Square

Thetford Market Square

Plincke worked closely with the architectural team to present proposals for radically changing Thetford’s historic market square. The scheme involves reclaiming the square for public events and activities by relocating the current areas of car parking and partly introducing shared surfaces for vehicular and pedestrian circulation.

The proposals create a contemporary space as a counterpoint to the adjacent Listed buildings. They will provide Thetford with enhanced tourist attraction and develop as a destination by improving the quality of the public spaces, combining simple and robust elements that enable the space to be used flexibly at different times.
