Further funding for Active Lancashire and their work in Fleetwood
Wyre Council is holding a public consultation event and asking residents to comment on options to transform Fleetwood over the next 20 years. The event will be held at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood on Tuesday 3 December 2pm – 7:30pm.
The council has been successful in the first round of the Government’s Future High Streets Fund and has been awarded £150,000 to develop a masterplan and business case.
Marianne Hesketh, Corporate Director for Communities, commented, “We are bidding for up to £25 million to implement our plans to make Fleetwood’s high street and town centre even better.
“A critical part of developing a masterplan is consultation and engagement with the community and key stakeholders so that a shared vision and strategy for the town can be created together. I would encourage residents and business owners to attend the event.”
A three week public consultation will commence from 2 December until 5.00pm on 20 December 2019.
The council will be holding a ‘drop in’ event on Tuesday 3 December at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood. This is an opportunity for you to come and discuss your future vision for Fleetwood and view initial proposals.
The event will also be an opportunity to view wider initiatives and proposals that are currently being developed in Fleetwood.
