Historic Bridge Street


By 2040, Historic Bridge Street will have a clear role as a vibrant, diverse new neighbourhood centre, complementary to its town centre role, which will breathe new life into the area, attracting a resident population, who will be drawn to and support the varied everyday services, as well as its leisure and cultural offer, and bustling evening economy on the door step.
