A six week campaign to encourage anybody who uses Bury St Edmunds town centre to help shape its future, has finished.

Over the last six weeks residents, shoppers, town centre workers, businesses and visitors have all been encouraged to look at a draft masterplan for the town centre and then give their feedback via a questionnaire. Over 1,000 copies of the draft masterplan document have been distributed through information stands and 11 public consultation events at key venues across the town.

The revised version will be considered by the town centre masterplan working group which includes representatives of OurBuryStEdmunds, Business Improvement District, the Suffolk Chamber in Bury St Edmunds, Bury St Edmunds market traders, The Bury Society, the Bury St Edmunds Town Trust, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds Town Council, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Suffolk County Council, working alongside urban design and town planning specialists David Lock Associates and Peter Brett Associates.

A final version of the masterplan will then go before St Edmundsbury Borough councillors to formally adopt before the end of the year.
