BRIDGWATER NEWS: Forum wants YOUR views on Fore Street plans

BRIDGWATER people are being urged to “have their say” on plans to upgrade the town’s pedestrianised Fore Street shopping centre.

Plans are in the pipeline to carry out improvements to the Fore Street area with Community Impact Mitigation money provided by EDF and Bridgwater Town Council is keen that the traders, residents and members of the public are able to comment on the project.

The plans are being led by Sedgemoor District Council and so everyone is invited to attend the next Town Development Forum meeting which will be held on Tuesday (March 13, 2018) at 7pm at Bridgwater Town Hall.

Town council leader and Westover Ward member, Cllr Brian Smedley, who chairs the Forum, has hand delivered invitations stating “as part of a successful bid for CIM money from EDF, Sedgemoor District Council will be embarking on a programme of enhancements to Fore street which will be taking place later this year.

“Bridgwater Town Council has invited the Sedgemoor officers responsible to present these plans to us before they take them any further.BRIDGWATER NEWS: Forum wants YOUR views on Fore Street plans

“Naturally we want to get YOUR views and input on this and so we are inviting you to attend the next meeting of the Town Development Forum which will be held at the Town Hall on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at 7pm and will look solely at this issue.

“We hope you will be able to attend. The meeting is open to anyone and contribution and discussion is welcome.”
