Stage 1 - Issues and Vision
During the Issues and Vision stage of the project (July-September 2017) our focus was on listening to the community and recording everyone's views about the project. The results of these conversations have influenced the project objectives, forming the foundation for the deliberative work of the Project Action Team.
Activities in this stage included a mail out of project information to almost 2500 local residents and businesses, a community workshop held at Sacred Heart College and attended by about 70 New Town locals, workshops with students at New Town Primary School, Sacred Heart College and New Town High School and discussions with traders in New Town Road.
In addition, lots of background information was collected in this period, including two weeks of traffic data to measure volumes and speeds, pedestrian counts and feature survey in the street.
The results of this consultation stage can be found in the 'related documents' section on this webpage.
