REDDITCH MP Rachel Maclean recently met with Adrian Field, the new manager of the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.
Among the items they discussed was Redditch’s £16.6 million Town Deal which will see investment in the town centre.
Mrs Maclean said: “Like many shopping centres across the country, the Kingfisher is also facing challenges as shopping habits change, but I have every confidence that Adrian and his team are ambitious for the shopping centre.
“I believe our game-changing regeneration plans for the town centre will support the Kingfisher and deliver a vibrant shopping and night time economy that residents rightly demand.”
Adrian added: “Experience has informed me that when it comes to regeneration and investment in town and city centres, it is always useful to liaise closely with key stakeholders involved in this work and spending time with Rachel helped me to get a better understanding of her thoughts.
“It was useful to know that we both agree that the investment opportunities for Redditch town centre through the likes of the Redditch Town Deal Fund and Redditch BID will benefit business, residents and visitors and that careful consideration of the detail of these plans is continuously needed as projects progress.”
