Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Masterplan

Bury St Edmunds marketThe Bury St Edmunds Town Centre Masterplan is a project to shape the future of the town centre so that it works for people. It is not just about ensuring that it continues to attract shoppers and visitors for decades to come, but also that it is accessible, and a place where people can live and work happily. That includes looking at how the town continues to cope with growth and other future pressures such as technological changes, and responds sensitively to a larger number of people and cars.

A huge part of the town centre masterplan will be to look at those elements of the town centre that don’t really work, are perhaps a bit grotty or disconnected ­- and that is where the public can play a big part.
