The West Ward Councillors recently nominated the Fullers Road/Greville Street area and the Mowbray Road/Hinkler Crescent area for potential shopping centres.
Past studies have shown that small shopping centres in the western portion of West Ward would not be viable without a significant increase in population surrounding the new centres.
Previously, the opinion of local communities was not to proceed with such a move due to the likelihood of a swift uptake of higher density housing surrounding any new shops.
Let Council know what you think of this idea. Send an email to Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mention their draft housing and local centres strategies and your opinion.
