What would you do to make Banbridge town centre a better place?

The Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council want to know.

They want the views of local people as they look to develop a draft masterplan for the area.

Proposals for the Banbridge Masterplan have been on public display in the Old Town Hall, Banbridge and Banbridge Leisure Centre since Thursday 26 November.

It is one of several projects across the Borough that look to plan future development and identify key projects by which to improve the area over the course of the next 15 years.

The creation of the Masterplan begun back in July 2015 by consultancy firm Aecom. They have already consulted the public to find out what matters most to the local people. All of the information they have gathered so far has been incorporated into potential projects and the draft Masterplan produced.

But they still want more.

So now the Council are offering an opportunity for local people to view and discuss the proposals at a consultation event on Tuesday 19 January in the Old Town Hall, Scarva Street, Banbridge.

Representatives from Aecom will be in attendance from 6pm to 8pm to provide information about the plan and to outline the proposals currently being developed.

This will be the second staffed event in relation to the Masterplan and the Council are keen to encourage as many people as possible to attend, view the proposals and offer their opinion before the consultation period ends on Thursday 18 February 2016.
