Next steps

  • Analysis of the survey responses and your comments. Thank you for your interest, input and time.
  • The design team will use this feedback to inform and develop the final vision and masterplan.
  • The design team will test ideas for specific sites to inform the final masterplan.
  • Technical testing of ideas such as changes to the roads with the relevant landowners to ensure that they are feasible within the wider road network.
  • Cost analysis to assess the viability of the ideas and to help prioritise projects that may flow from the masterplan, as well as informing further discussion with landowners.
  • Later in the year, we will share the final vision and masterplan with you. A decision on whether to adopt a new strategy for the town centre will be taken by councillors in spring 2022.
