LEDBURY Town Council is seeking opinions over how to spend £110,000 of government funds to breathe new life into the town centre.

The funding is part of a scheme to kick start the return to the high street as lockdown restrictions ease. It is intended help local councils to boost tourism, improve green spaces and provide safer options for the public's safe return to town centre shopping.

The funding is available from two sources — a Welcome Back Fund £20,000 and Great Places to Visit Projects £90,000.

Ledbury Town Council urging residents to have their say on how they would like to see money spent. 

An online survey was launched this week asking residents to choose their top three priorities for improving the town from a list of 14 possibilities.

These include such proposals such as creating a shop local campaign, major tree planting projects, improved public toilets, cash for the playground, winter hanging baskets or a new tourist information information, among others. Respondents can also write in suggestions.

The deadline for the poll is Friday, October 15, at noon.  

The town council will review the outcome of the poll before estimating the cost of the top choices. These will then be presented to Herefordshire Council for consideration of funding through these two funding opportunities.
