As you are hopefully aware by now, a Working Group has been put together to develop a Town Centre Recovery Plan for Macclesfield.

Some of your organisations are already represented on the Working Group, others from your Groups attended an initial Focus Group held in August, and others have helpfully supported the Working Group in promoting a survey we have been undertaking with residents and businesses over the last month. We wanted to provide you with an update on the Plan, our consultation process, and detail how we would like you involved in the future.

So in terms of the Plan, we have been working hard on developing the attached Executive Summary which outlines the principles to the Plan; We have also been working hard on populating the first three sections of the Plan which set the context to the Plan, set out our baseline position with some emerging evidence from our surveys, and detail our draft objectives for the Plan which are framed by the High Street Task Forces Recovery Framework.

This week we are launching invites for attendance at 4 fact finding sessions, at which will aim to gather further information as to what residents, retailers, hospitality organisations, cultural organisations, and digital businesses think the Plan should include. These sessions are very much targeted at individual organisations and residents, to ensure that we have a diversity of voices and opinions.

Attached also are the details of the fact finding sessions so please do join and make sure your views and ideas are heard.
