Businesses and residents are being asked what they would want Strand CBD to look like in the future, as one of the early steps in a potential regeneration plan.
Their responses will, as a part of a public consultation drive, add great value to a consideration process for a proposed draft plan.
People’s thoughts are being gathered online through an initial questionnaire, that will at a later stage be followed by a survey in the town centre itself.
The prospective plan is being put together by a group of community volunteers under the collective name of ‘Future Strand’, and is supported by the Strand BID.
“The creation of this plan is so important as it will help determine what Strand will look like in future. To create a plan that truly will benefit the town, we need the help of those who know their town best: those who live and work there,” says Grant Goodwin, chair of the Strand BID, the organisation that initiated Future Strand.
