Bewdley have your say

There's still plenty of time for Bewdley residents to have say on how £250,000 improvement scheme should be spent

Bewdley residents and businesses are being reminded that they still have the chance to find out more and share their views on what things they'd like to see included in a £250,000 investment scheme to improve the area. 

Have your say on Bewdley ImprovementsAround 150 people took the opportunity to view plans and ask officers questions at a Worcestershire County Council public information event held on Monday (January 30) at the town's Guildhall. In addition more than 300 consultation documents were handed out to passers-by.

People are being asked for their opinion on how they'd like to see funding prioritised for improvements to the sustainable transport infrastructure and attractiveness of the area.

This could include work to improve shared cycling/pedestrian paths, bus shelters, street lighting, seating areas, pedestrian crossings, cycling parking and signage.

Anyone not able to attend the information event can still find out more about the plans and have their say via www.worcestershire.gov.uk/bewdleyscheme until March 31.

The dedicated includes an easy-to-use online questionnaire. It also has further details about a traffic trial in Welsh Gate, taking place in February and March, aiming to cut congestion and improve air quality.

Alternatively, a copy of the questionnaire can be downloaded, completed and sent through to the Transport Consultation Team, Worcestershire County Council, County Hall, H1 Pavilion, Spetchley Road, Worcester, WR5 2NP.

Copies can also be picked up at a variety of locations around Bewdley including the Tourist Information Centre, Library, Museum and various shops in the town.

Cllr John Campion, County Councillor for Bewdley and Cabinet Member for Localism and Communities, said: "The turnout at the public information event was very encouraging and showed the level of interest people have about improving things for their town. I'd like to say thank-you to everyone that attended and expressed their views.

"It's important that anyone interested understands they still have until March 31 to pass on their thoughts on how this significant investment in the area should be spent. This can be done by filling in the simple form on the consultation leaflets available at various venues around the town or by simply logging on to www.worcestershire.gov.uk/bewdleyscheme. The views of residents and businesses really count so I'd encourage everyone to have their say."
