Work to prepare Shrewsbury’s Pride Hill Shopping Centre for future development has started.

This ‘enabling work’ is a first, vital step in the transformation of the shopping centre and Shrewsbury town centre.

Contractors will be stripping out shop fronts and installing hoardings in and around the centre. This will allow essential works to begin whilst allowing our remaining stores to reopen or relocate after lockdown.

Earlier this month Shropshire Council announced that Pride Hill Shopping Centre is the preferred option for a new civic centre to house the council offices and some of its public sector partners from 2023, with Councillors set to consider the next steps in the coming weeks.

The public toilets in the Pride Hill Centre will now be out of use but customers are able to use the new toilets in the Darwin Shopping Centre. Direct access via the escalators to and from the Pride Hill Centre and Riverside Centre will be closed.

The most direct pedestrian route from Riverside to Pride Hill and the Darwin Centre will be Roushill Bank. Access from Raven Meadows multi-storey car park to the Darwin Centre remains unchanged. The Pride Hill Centre is set to close as part of the plans to redevelop it and to make the Darwin Centre Shrewsbury’s main shopping centre where you will find many of the former Pride Hill stores.
