A CONSULTATION on a Masterplan for the future of Uttoxeter will end in one week. The survey seeks to garner the ‘concerns and aspirations’ of people living and working in the town. The consultation will run until 5pm on Wednesday, September 30.
It will be used to help shape the new Masterplan, which replaces the current plan for Uttoxeter created in 2003. East Staffordshire Borough Council (ESBC) and Staffordshire County Council have commissioned consultants Cushman and Wakefield to support in the production of the new Masterplan for Uttoxeter.
The Cushman & Wakefield team, supported by Lathams (Urban Design) and FORE (Transport Infrastructure), works with local authorities and other public sector authorities and partnerships, landowners, businesses and community interest groups, to ‘create deliverable visions’ for towns.
As part of the process of renewing the Masterplan ESBC and Staffordshire County Council need to understand the concerns and aspirations of those who live in, work in and use Uttoxeter.
Cllr George Allen, Deputy Leader for Regeneration and Planning Policy at ESBC said: “Towns and cities across the country are facing huge challenges, none more so than now given the current issues impacting the country. We are pleased that we have been able to work with the county council to consider options for the future of Uttoxeter and now we want you to have your say. Your views matter, as the 2020 Masterplan will help to shape the future of Uttoxeter for the next decade.”
The consultation documents and survey are available at:www.eaststaffsbc.gov.uk/burton-town-regeneration-programme/regeneration/uttoxeter-masterplan.
The Masterplan is another part of the East Staffordshire Regeneration Programme to create a ‘vibrant and attractive borough which will have a unique place in the county’s economy and be well placed to adapt to opportunities in the future.’
