Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is delighted to extend an invitation to the public to visit The Priory Centre in St Neots and explore the proposed development plans for the centre.
The purpose of these sessions is to present the proposed plans for the Priory Centre's development and to gather valuable input from the public on how they believe the space should be used.
Residents can attend these sessions on the following dates:
Thursday 14 December 10am - 6.30pm
Friday 15 December 10am - 7.30pm
Saturday 16 December 9am - 6pm
The development of the Priory Centre is part of a larger investment in St Neots which sees £15 million from a range of sources, including £3.7 million from the Department of Levelling Up, Housing & Communities' (DLUHC) Future High Streets Fund, to improve the look and feel of the town centre.
Executive Councillor for Job, Economy and Housing, Cllr Sam Wakeford, said: "The Priory Centre is a cherished space for our community, and we want to ensure that any enhancements made reflect the preferences and priorities of those who use it. These sessions provide an excellent opportunity for residents to understand the proposed plans and to actively contribute to shaping the future of this vital community asset."
Mayor of St Neots, Cllr Rob Simonis, said: "The town and district councils have been working closely on the future purpose of the Priory Centre and how the building can be adapted to best serve the town. We have worked with local groups, hirers and industry professionals to set out an exciting vision but now need the views and suggestions of the people who will be using the centre, our residents."
The drop-in sessions will be conducted in a friendly and accessible manner, allowing attendees to review the proposed plans, ask questions, and provide constructive feedback. Council representatives and project planners will be on hand to engage in discussions, clarify any queries, and capture the diverse perspectives of the public regarding the functions and events they envision for the Priory Centre.
