WINCANTON TOWN CENTRE STRATEGY

Wincanton town centre strategy

CCL led a multi-disciplinary team appointed by South Somerset District Council to produce a Strategy and Action Plan for Wincanton town centre with the underlying objective to boost footfall, create a more economically vibrant centre and support future regeneration aspirations.

The Strategy is informed by a comprehensive baseline review of the town centre working with the local business community and key stakeholders to develop a clear overarching vision and strategic objectives to deliver change. A number of potential development site options and public realm improvements were identified together with a series of complementary initiatives and interventions to rejuvenate the commercial centre.

The Strategy is supported by an Action Plan which outlines the projects and initiatives considered a priority for the next 1-3 years to deliver the shorter-term objectives.
