The Council has established a long-term ambition for the future of Town Centre West which it is delivering through a number of development schemes, policies, and initiatives which will collectively help maximise the area’s potential.  Over recent months the Council has been working with specialist regeneration, urban design, and transport planning consultants to develop a Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) for Town Centre West which articulates a comprehensive overall vision and ambition for the area.
