This morning the Mayor, Councillor Peter Abelson, hosted a breakfast meeting with local business people to outline Council’s vision for the civic centre site. There was general support for what the Council is trying to achieve to secure improved community facilities on the site and revitalise the centre. This support was given with a note of caution about the effects of development, displacement and construction on business operators.
Businesses were keen to be kept informed of progress of the project and the Mayor undertook to ensure this happens. Please visit council’s website if you would like to find out more, including details about ways to have your views considered by Council.
