Bromsgrove High Street and heritage plans consultation

People are being asked to comment on plans to redesign a high street in a Worcestershire town centre.

Bromsgrove District Council and Worcestershire County Council have earmarked £2m to spend on Bromsgrove High Street.

They want to hear peoples' thoughts on things like benches, lamp posts and other street furniture.

A six-week consultation on the proposals is under way and exhibitions are being held.

The plans are on display at the Dolphin Centre on School Drive and at Bromsgrove Library.

The information can also be viewed on a High Street market stall on 24 February.

People are also being asked for their views on a council bid for money from the Heritage Lottery Fund "to protect and improve the heritage of Bromsgrove".

Councillor Del Booth, Bromsgrove District Council's portfolio holder for town centre regeneration, said: "The new High Street has been carefully designed to be both practical and attractive, and in combination with the Townscape Heritage Initiative it will be a real boost to our town."
