Shop Fronts

The Society led a study in 2005 to improve the street scene in the town centre, especially along the Historic Spine, by attention to the design and restoration of shop fronts. It illustrated the expected standard of renovations for each building in the High Street, both the façades above eye level and the shop fronts and shop signs themselves.

A report was published and the scheme was implemented by the Town Council. The recommendations were incorporated into Project TC-4 of the Neighbourhood Plan.
