Scarborough Town Centre Projects

Re-greening the High Street

A re-greening of Scarborough town centre through the planting of birch trees, native grasses and hardy native plants plus the installation of additional seating in order to enhance the environment of the town centre, creating an inviting public realm which will encourage shoppers to dwell and visit. The new seating will be adaptable and moveable in order to allow for town centre events to take place.

The Scenes from Scarborough Art Trail includes a variety of images by local artists and can be found across the town centre, located in shop windows. The artwork, which has been created using print, photography, painting and graphic design, depicts a variety of vistas from the local area, appropriately named 'Scenes from Scarborough'.

The project is a joint initiative by Scarborough Borough Council, Scarborough Town Centre Team and Scarborough Town Deal Board, supported by government Town Deal funding.

The artworks are intended to stay in place temporarily and the locations may change throughout the life of the project. Further information on the artwork currently viewable can be seen on
