Today, an important debate is taking place in Parliament about the Government’s Towns Fund – a multi-million fund used to regenerate local town centres – and James Grundy MP is also launching his own debate locally on what Leigh’s Town Centres need to thrive and succeed.
The Town Centre Regeneration Survey, organised by the Leigh MP, invites local residents to have their say on what improvements they want to see made to local transport infrastructure in their town centres, what regeneration projects they want to see on their high streets, and what employment and education opportunities are needed to create local jobs and help people find employment.
The feedback received from this survey will not only be passed on to Wigan Council, but also to the Government, to ensure Leigh’s voice is heard at both a local and national governmental level.
Speaking about the survey, Mr Grundy said: “Whilst debates in Parliament hold great importance, it’s also vital that these debates are opened up to the local community, so local residents can have their say on the improvement they want to see made to their town centres.
“This is why I wanted to create my Town Centre Regeneration Survey, to ensure that I can fight for their priorities for our town centres, and ensure that their voices are heard by both Wigan Council and by Parliament.
“The survey is now live on my website and can also be accessed on my Facebook page, but for those who may not be able to fill the survey in online, please do leave a voicemail with my office or send an email with your telephone number, and a member of my team can talk you through the survey so you too can have your say.”
