TOWNSPEOPLE are being urged to have their say on the Stratford’s planned ‘urban quarter’.
Stratford District Council has prepared a draft document on how the proposed Canal Quarter Regeneration Zone could work.
A six-week public consultation is being held into the development which would see 1,000 new homes and a number of businesses built to create a new community.
The planned development in the canal area close to the town centre would see currently ‘under-used’ land the equivalent size of around 27 football pitches transformed.
Council leader Chris Saint said: “This is the opportunity for the public and stakeholders to make a contribution to the planning framework for the Canal Quarter and comments on the proposals will be more than welcome.”
The council is hosting two drop-in days when officers will be on hand to answer questions about the proposal.
They will be held at Venture House Business Centre on Birmingham Road on Monday February 19, from 10am to 4pm, and at the district council offices on Church Street on Wednesday March 7, from 2pm to 7pm.
The consultation will run until Friday March 16.
