What’s happening to our Town Centre?
and how can we improve High St and Bridge St?

Geraldine Collinge and John Scampion – Town Strategic Partnership

Wednesday 17 November, 6pm


Changes in shopping habits, empty stores, more cafés and the toll taken by the Covid pandemic. It is all showing in the town centre and what is the town doing about it? We will hear from Geraldine Collinge, Chair of the recently-formed Town Strategic Partnership, which represents all the key parties with interests in the town centre. She will explain the priorities and actions proposed to secure the Town's future.

The County Council is about to launch a public consultation on an improvement scheme for High Street and Bridge Street that will inject new energy and life into the town centre. John Myatt from town-planning consultancy PJA will present the design of the scheme in the context of placemaking. Who needs cars?
