Views sought on plans for Wivey town centre
A report setting out a “vision” for Wiveliscombe town centre has been published and local people are asked to give their views.
The vision builds on results from a previous consultation.
It proposes a one-way system in West Street, a raised platform for the Square with a safe crossing, design restrictions to stop problems from bad parking, and updating The Square to improve the town centre’s appearance.
A project steering group involved members from the town council, local businesses and organisations, and local people with regeneration experience.
The group was chaired by ward councillor, Dave Mansell, who said: “Our aim has been to listen to what local people want and to enhance our own town centre as a hub for the community and visitors”.
The vision report has been prepared by town planner Richard Guise and highways consultant Phil Parker. A summary and the full report can be viewed at www.wivey.co.uk, where feedback can also be given.
The project has been funded through Town Recovery and Welcome Back funds from Somerset West and Taunton Council, the European Union and the Government.
