Public to help shape Grimsby town redevelopment

People living in Grimsby are being asked to help shape designs for the future appearance of two key areas of the town centre.

Ideas for the redevelopment of Station Approach and Riverhead Square went on view at the council's Renaissance Shop in Victoria Street on Saturday.

Landscape architect company Whitelaw Turkington attended the event to hear comments and ideas from the public.

A further exhibition event is planned for early August, the council said.

Councillor Geoff Lowis, portfolio holder for regeneration and housing, said: "This is an important step in helping local people to influence and shape the designs for how the town will look in the future.

"We want to generate interest and excitement in the town centre, to attract new visitors and to guide new investment and development into the area.

"The Renaissance Shop is open to the public on weekdays there is plenty of opportunity for people to have their say should they not be able to make the planned event."
