INVESTMENT IN OUR TOWN - RECOMMENDATIONS
Further to my request last month for feedback on how best to invest the £7.8 million received by the Borough Council from the sale of North Place and Portland Street car parks, I have forwarded it to the Council for discussion at the budget meeting in March.
Three main areas for capital expenditure you felt would be most beneficial for the future prosperity of the Town are:
1) Marketing the Town through attendance at exhibitions, trade fairs and other activities.
2) Additional car parking facilities (possibly underground) at North Place for easy access to the Brewery and Town centre.
3) Redevelopment of the Town Hall sourced possibly via match funding from sponsors.
Thank you to all our members who responded. It means so much more with your input concerning major decisions for the future prosperity of our Town.
