Plymouth City Council planners have been hitting the road to hear what people think about where they live and how they would like their neighbourhood to look in years to come and have found out that people want to support businesses on their doorstep and would like to see local shopping areas made more attractive with a wider variety of shops.
The consultation began in mid-February and there are still some events that people can attend to put forward their comments. These will help shape the Sustainable Neighbourhoods Development Plan Document, which will guide development in the future.
The council would also like to hear what people think about ideas to transform Seaton Barracks into a new heart for Derriford with shops, cafes and a new school for newly-created homes and existing communities.
The Derriford and Seaton Area Action plan is part of a range of proposals designed to create a place where people want to live, work and visit by promoting change that complements the existing uses in the Derriford area.
There is still time to comment online about this plan together with people’s thoughts on shopping centres in the city. Both are online and the consultations run until Wednesday, March 30.
