What do you think of Leominster Town Centre?

Leominster is one of a number of high streets in England to receive a share of the government’s £95 million High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) Fund, which seeks to breathe new life into high streets that are rich in heritage and potential. Until March 2024, Herefordshire Council and Leominster Town Council will be working in partnership with residents, businesses and community groups to deliver a range of projects, agreed with Historic England, that aim to renew and rejuvenate Leominster’s High Street and conservation area.

One element of this work will improve public spaces (public realm) in the town, with a focus on Corn Square. HSHAZ investment will help to make the most of the potential of Leominster’s Historic heart as a retail area, visitor attraction, and events venue for our local community. Improvements to roads and pavements are needed to improve the look of our town centre and ensure that it is accessible for all residents and visitors.

To help us understand the views of local residents and businesses, the Leominster HSHAZ delivery team are undertaking a six-week public consultation on how the public spaces in the town can be improved. Full project details, a video briefing and an online survey are available at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/leominsterhaz . Hard copies of the survey are available on request, for those who are unable to access the online materials.

Members of the consultation team will also be on-site at the Friday market in Corn Square on 27th May 2022, if there are any questions that you would like to ask them directly.

The consultation will run until Tuesday 21 June 2022.  For any further details, contact: contact@leominsterconsultation.info
