Meeting to give updates on Stratford town centre plans

Stratford Editorial 13th Dec, 2021   0

A VIRTUAL meeting will be held for residents to find out about plans to improve town centre roads in Stratford.

The Stratford Town Centre Strategic Partnership Group (SPG) will host the event on Thursday December 16 at 2pm over Zoom.

The partnership is made up of various stakeholder organisations in the town, and was formed in 2020 to oversee the implementation of the Stratford Neighbourhood Plan.

It has met monthly to discuss plans and developments within the town centre and increase joined-up thinking before plans are developed.

And it will have an open meeting for the first time to inform the public about the work it has been planning and what has been carried out.

The SPG had previously discussed plans to improve Bridge Street and High Street to create a better balance of pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles, and is assessing other potential schemes for Stratford in the new year.

SPG chair Geraldine Collinge said: “As we head into the end of 2021, we wanted to make our December meeting public to talk through the projects we’ve been working on together so far and what we are looking to progress in the future.

“The SPG was created not only to oversee the Neighbourhood Plan, but to make sure the key organisations in Stratford could all meet and discuss plans together rather than having a disjointed approach to town centre improvements.

“We wanted to share what we have done with the public and encourage them to speak to us directly about our work and why the group’s existence will help shape Stratford’s future.

“We are looking forward to the public’s attendance and would welcome any questions they have, either during the meeting or at the end.”

The meeting with start at 2pm and is expected to last until 3.30pm. Anyone who wants to attend can find the Zoom link here:
