The Mayor of Ferndown is urging residents to get involved with the town centre strategy.
Stage 1 took place at the Barrington Theatre on 27 September and there will be a second public event on 17 November, also at the Barrington from 10am–7pm.
This will provide an opportunity for residents to review the proposed projects in more detail before the strategy is finalised.
Following this, a draft action plan will be prepared. A formal consultation will be held at the end of the year/beginning of 2017 before the contents of the strategy and action plan are finalised.
Business and community support is essential if Ferndown is to attract public funding and private investment to implement the strategy.
All residents are urged to attend on 17 November. Staff from NEW Masterplanning, the company commissioned by East Dorset District Council and Ferndown Town Council to come up with the strategy, will be on hand to answer questions.
