Doncaster City Centre, DN1


An array of boldly-coloured, quadrilateral and circular planters, including timber benching, was commissioned for the Quality Streets public realm regeneration initiative in the heart of Doncaster city centre.

The Quality Streets initiative includes a mix of traffic management, street lighting, junction improvements, active travel provision, landscaping and environmental improvements – with the objective to transform the city centre into a vibrant, desirable destination, for both residents and visitors alike.

Consisting of 27nr. planters and 18nr. benching elements, IOTA’s products provide green oases, and resting / congregation points, throughout the city centre. The metalwork was specified to be finished to RAL 6018 [Yellow green] - a bold and cheerful colour, in line with the objectives of Quality Streets. On IOTA’s advice, the material selected was 1.4003 Stainless Steel – a utility-grade stainless steel, with significant merit for public realm use. For all quadrilateral elements, the planters and benching were designed in a modular fashion, allowing ease of re-location.

IOTA planters were commissioned by Eurovia Contracting on behalf of Doncaster City Council. The essential design concept was developed by the Doncaster City Council; and IOTA's responsibilities covered design detailing and development, value engineering, manufacture and supply.
