Local residents and business people are being urged to put forward their views and suggestions for the future of Watford town centre at a consultation meeting that opens this week.
A disused shop in Charter Place in Watford town centre was re-opened on Monday to display plans for the future of the town, which outlined the Council's intentions to develop a series of 'vibrant' shops, offices, leisure attractions and family friendly activities alongside more affordable housing and accomodation.
Visitors are encouraged to leave their own views and make suggestions about how they feel the town centre should be improved. Some of the first ideas put forward have included a new indoor market, more play areas for local children and a larger cinema.
Mayor Dorothy Thornhill commented: “People should know how we're putting what they have told us into real plans. We have done a lot of consultation. We're still asking people's views but the reality is real things are happening for the town. People should come along and get involved because it will lead to actions."
The consultation shop is open to visitors daily from 12pm midday to 7pm until Saturday 24th July.
