Alston Front Street Redevelopment

A second public drop-in event was held in Alston on Wednesday 27 June to present to the local community the feedback and results from the previous event held in May regarding the potential plans and ideas for the regeneration of Front Street.

The feedback received from May's session regarding the various options has been reviewed, and many aspects of the scheme have been considered in the updated design including the possible location of seating areas, changes to street layout and changes to the public realm (pavements).  Alston Front Street development - preferred option plan (PDF 2MB)

The event was well attended and the Council developed a further understanding of the wants and needs of the local community.

Cllr Claire Driver, Local Member for Alston, said:

"This is such an exciting project for Alston and the wider local community, and I am delighted to be hosting a second event to show people some of the initial designs based on their feedback and involvement in the scheme so far. I am incredibly proud to represent this community, so it's important that they are involved at every stage of the project, and I am very excited about how it will look and serve the town once completed!"
