Businesses and other local organisations are being invited to attend a workshop later this month to share their opinions of Grantham’s town centre and offer ideas on how it could be improved.
Following a successful pitch last year which saw Grantham secure a place on the Government’s shortlist for its £1 billion Future High Streets programme, South Kesteven District Council's economic development and regeneration company InvestSK is developing the full bid for funding which will be submitted in June.
The views and insight gathered from local stakeholders during the facilitated consultation workshop, organised by InvestSK, will form a crucial part of the funding bid.
Coun Kelham Cooke, Chairman of InvestSK and Leader of South Kesteven District Council, said: “Grantham has a rich heritage, enviable connectivity and huge potential for dynamic and sustainable growth.
“We’re committed to realising Grantham’s potential for the benefit of the whole community.
"If successful, the bid we’re developing for the Government’s Future High Street programme will catalyse the town’s regeneration and make it a more attractive place to live, work, invest in, and visit.”
The workshop will explore what physical improvements could be made to boost the experience of the town centre and how more people could be attracted to develop a more diverse town centre offer.
Local business, property owners or other local organisations with an interest in helping to shape Grantham’s regeneration are invited to share their views at the consultation workshop on Thursday, 27 February at the Guildhall.
There will be a breakfast workshop for local businesses from 8am to 9.30am followed by a walk around the town centre at 11am and a second second workshop for wider stakeholders at 12 noon.
