|Aldershot town centre is failing and the community can no longer stand by and do nothing. The people of Aldershot are not prepared to watch their town centre dwindle away. We need creative, collaborative, and ambitious solutions that are rooted in our community. That’s why Aldershot Civic Society are starting a community conversation in our town.|
Join us for the
Aldershot Emergency Town Centre Meeting
7-9pm, Wed 15 May 2019
The meeting is open to everyone and provides a chance for the community to hear what is proposed, be inspired as to what could be achieved, and to voice their ideas. The event will include input from speakers and residents, including:
– David Clifford, Leader of Rushmoor Borough Council
– Ian Harvey, Executive Director of Civic Voice
– Others, TBC
The people of Aldershot know what they want and what they deserve. Aldershot Civic Society’s Emergency Town Centre Meeting will bring together decision makers, experts and local people to develop creative and ambitious solutions rooted in our community.
Justin Coll, Chair of Aldershot Civic Society, said:
“As a representative group for the people of Aldershot, the Civic Society has decided that now is the time for greater action. The state of our town centre cannot be allowed to slide further towards wrack and ruin. The serious decline of Aldershot town centre has been a well known issue for a considerable time and whilst part of a national trend, we feel positive that collaborative action can still be taken to reverse this and bring some life and innovation back to the centre of our town. It’s time for the local community to come together and better understand what’s going on so action can be taken with their full support”.
