A new traffic calming scheme, has widened the pavements. Raised ‘squares’ up Market Hill, provide a places to sit and take a rest. There are signs that tell the story of that area, and of the Triangle in general. The Corn Hall, already a successful local centre of culture, has been extended and totally refurbished, attracting visitors throughout the day and evening, making it an important cultural venue in the eastern region. Currently in development a new Wildlife Gardens behind the Council Offices on Market Hill will provide a new green space for Diss. A floating island and boardwalk will connect the gardens to a redeveloped King’s Head Yard, opening up the waterside vista of Diss and providing a second pedestrian way between the upper town and Mere Street.
