PREPARATION work on Doncaster’s planned new performance venue is finally set to start next week.

Builders will close the final section of Waterdale Central car park on Monday as work final begins.

Doncaster Council and its partner Muse Developments have gradually phased out the car park over past few months so work on the new developments can start.

Construction of the town’s first public square and other public realm areas is already under way.

Work on the new look square and 850 space Civic Quarter car park is close to completion with most floors already open to the public. The car park will be fully operational by the end of September. Other car parks are also located nearby ensuring sufficient parking is available.

Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: “The transformation of Waterdale is certainly gathering pace and the closure of this car park is necessary as part of the plans. Plenty of parking remains in the area, including the newly refurbished Civic Quarter car park. This is an important regeneration project for Doncaster and the new attractions and facilities should make a real difference for the town centre and the whole borough.”
