Harborough District Council (HDC) first started looking at this a couple of years ago, and some of you may have been to one of their roadshows in 2019. HDC are now ready to start sharing their more detailed proposals, and are offering Sustainable Harborough Community members a chance to find out more.
What Is The Masterplan?
The masterplan sets out longer term proposals to improve the town centre including new buildings, more varied uses (shops, cafés, restaurants, workspaces), streets, pavements and facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.
Town centres face challenging times ahead due to competition from online shopping and edge of town shopping centres. However there is an opportunity to make Market Harborough more attractive as a town centre and enable it to serve its residents and visitors better.
Market Harborough has many distinctive historic buildings, streets and spaces The masterplan will consider how these heritage assets can enhance the town centre’s prospects in the future.
