Have your say on Dursley town improvements

Posted: 05/03/2009 20:50:43

Dursley's residents and local businesses are being urged to comment on proposals to regenerate public areas at the heart of the town.

As part of a regeneration partnership, Stroud District Council is leading on public realm improvement works around the Market Place at the junction of Castle, Parsonage and Silver Street. Local businesses and residents are being invited to attend a display of concepts, and provide comments on possible changes.

The aim of the project will be to improve the paving surface surrounding the Market Place and to seamlessly join Sainsbury's to the Market Place.

Working in partnership, Dursley Town Council, Stroud District Council, Gloucestershire County Council, Vale Vision, and Dursley Town Trust will guide the proposals.

Councillor Barbara Tait, Cabinet Member for Planning and Climate Change, said:

"It is important for the future of the town's prosperity and economic development to ensure a high quality relationship between the new supermarket and the town centre. The community's input will be invaluable and ensure we create a vibrant and attractive town for residents and visitors alike."

Illman Young Architects have been appointed to undertake the detailed architectural and engineering drawings which will ensure that the plans:

Complement the historic features of the site

Clearly direct traffic exiting from Parsonage Street through to Castle Street

Exclude traffic access at the point at which Silver Street meets the Market Place on the southern side

Suitable for pedestrian movement i.e. does not create a slip or trip hazard

Suitable for vehicle purpose i.e. vehicle weight and manoeuvring

The consultation events open to the general public will take place as follows:

Event 1: Tuesday 10th March 2009, 4.00 pm - 5.30 pm

Short presentation and display

Hall at the rear of the Methodist Church, Castle Street Dursley
