Southern Gateway


By 2040, new life will have been breathed into the Southern Gateway; positive re-use of land and buildings will have introduced a new mix of uses, supported by a growing resident community, whilst an extended historic Market Place and the distinctive landmark buildings nearby will once again be a key gateway destination attracting visitors to the town centre.
