Residents in Normanton are being invited to comment on a plan to regenerate their town.
Wakefield Council chiefs are staging a number of consultation events on proposals, which include new housing and improvements to the town centre.
The plan is being prepared to encourage investment in Normanton and will look to deliver high quality developments and public spaces.
Coun Denise Jeffery, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and economic growth, said: “We hope that by implementing this plan we can improve the town’s economic well-being, growth and prosperity, so that Normanton can become a more successful and thriving community. I encourage all local residents to come to the events and have their say on the plans and let us know what they think the priorities need to be for the area.”
The proposals look at developing new housing areas, improving the town centre retail area, developing new jobs, improving the connectivity of neighbourhoods to the town centre and employment areas and through the creation of safe and accessible pedestrian, cycle and vehicle routes.
The consultation events will take place from 10am to 7.30pm on Friday 22 February between in Normanton Town Hall and from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 23 February in Normanton Library. The exhibition will be available to view for a further week between Saturday 23 February and Saturday 2 March at Normanton Library.
