Council Officers advised that public engagement is a key element of the preparation of the proposed regeneration framework in terms of hearing the views town centre stakeholders in terms of the current challenges and how they would like to see the town centre develop over the short, medium and long term.
The Regeneration Framework will be a focused document setting out the regeneration vision and objectives for the town centre including opportunities, key challenges, and a series of proposed actions over the short, medium and long term. Whilst not exhaustive, the Framework will cover themes such as traffic management, parking, pedestrian/cycle infrastructure & connectivity, streetscape/public realm, built heritage, green infrastructure, business development, tourism etc.
Delivery of any actions emerging from the Framework when completed, will be the responsibility of a variety of stakeholders and will be subject to securing the requisite budgets.
The public engagement workshop will take place in the in 2 different locations and time on Thursday 16th February.
The first workshop will be on Thursday 16th February, Newtownstewart 2000 Centre from 2-4pm and the other in the Mellon Country Inn at a later time of 7pm to 9pm on the 16th February.
