The Masterplan seeks to provide a vision and delivery plan that will guide new development over the next 15 years, while preserving the town’s industrial history and heritage assets. It deals with broader issues including identifying 16 potential sites that could be regenerated or redeveloped.

Design Code experts PJA consulting have been appointed by the council to develop the Design Code following the consultation.

You can make comments via the website which will be open for six weeks until November 24.
