A public consultation event was held in The Hildreds Shopping Centre in Lumley Road on Friday and Saturday and proved the perfect opportunity for residents to have their say.

Mayor Coun Sid Dennis, who was one of the councillors who turned out to help with the consultation, said: “I would like to thank everyone who took the time to share their views for the Neighbourhood Development Plan consultation in the Hildred’s centre on Friday and Saturday.

“It was great to see so many people getting involved to help shape the future of our town.”
