The purpose of the consultation was to gauge the level of support from the public and stakeholders to the overall proposals for the town centre to help decide whether to develop them further. Additional detail was provided on the 20mph zone (including changes to Priory Road) and the area around Northgate junction as these were identified as ‘early deliverables’ which could start to be progressed.
