Wincanton Regeneration Consultation
The Wincanton Town Centre Regeneration consultation has gone live and will run as an online only consultation until 5 May.
The town centre enjoys an abundance of attractive heritage buildings however Wincanton Town Centre Strategy identified that its footways, highway areas and public spaces would benefit from enhancement.
The public realm designs will help to improve perceptions, support existing businesses by creating a better environment in which to trade and provide spaces for community activities. Increasing the attractiveness of the town will encourage people to visit and stay longer, revitalising the town through increased footfall and spending.
As local residents, businesses and stakeholders, your knowledge and insight is invaluable to the design process.
Under the current Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to hold public consultation events as would ordinarily be the case, your completion of this survey will therefore be helpful to ensure that we understand the views of local people.

The responses received to the consultation will help to identify the most appropriate public realm improvements for Wincanton. Each location will then be subject to detailed, technical design work which will need to meet the safety requirements and secure approval from Somerset County Council and Highways England. There will be a further public consultation on the advanced scheme designs in late July.
