Have your say - residents invited to speak on the future of the Town Centre

Redditch Editorial 4th Mar, 2019   0

REDDITCH residents are being urged to share their thoughts on the future of the town centre.

Two consultation meetings are being held this week to give local people a chance to discuss a number of topics.

These include the proposed redevelopment of the town centre, the creation of a services hub, changes to the railway station and the future of the Town Hall building and its surrounding area.

Council representatives involved in the projects will be available to talk to on Friday, March 8, from 1pm until 7pm, in Committee Room One at the Town Hall.

For anyone who cannot attend this event officers will be available on Saturday, March 9, from 9.30am until 1pm, in Committee Room Two at the Town Hall.

Coun Matt Dormer, Leader of the Council, said: “We’re already beginning to make plans to help unlock Redditch and the town centre is a vital component in realising our town’s potential.

“For many people travelling into the borough, whether by train, bus or car, this is the first thing they see and there is no question there is room for improvement.

“There are so many individuals, groups and communities who are passionate about our town and we want all of them involved or giving their opinions, because these projects are for the benefit of everyone in the borough.

“We want to provide our residents and visitors with the regenerated and revitalised town centre they need, want and deserve.”
