Kingsbridge Town Council are hosting a public meeting about the proposed regeneration of Kingsbridge.

Martin Johnson, clerk to Kingsbridge Town Council said: “The front page of last week’s Gazette announced South Hams District Council’s concept to regenerate Kingsbridge Quayside.

“An inherent problem with individual feedback is that we do not know what our neighbours and the wider community feel about important issues until they are collated ‘at the other end’.

“Therefore, Councillor Chris Povey, Kingsbridge Town Mayor, will chair a public meeting at 7pm on Monday, July 3, at St Edmunds Church, Fore Street.

“The Quayside regeneration concept will be presented and it will allow the Kingsbridge community to have their say. What do you love about it? What do you hate about it? And everything in between.

“It will hopefully capture the community’s thoughts and you will have a better understanding of each other’s opinions. This will also inform the town council’s comments. It’s going to be a big conversation. Be there.”

The plans can be viewed on-line at - type Kingsbridge Quayside Consultation into the search box - where you will be able to complete a questionnaire with your feedback.

You can discuss the proposals with district council officers, who will be around during the Farmers Market in the Town Square on Saturday, July 1, from 10am to 2pm, at Kingsbridge Library on Monday, July 3, Tuesday, July 4, Wednesday, July 5, and Friday, July 7, from 9am to 4pm.

They will also be in Tesco foyer between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday, July 6.

Martin added: “These proposals have the potential to change the Kingsbridge waterfront forever. Indeed, this is THE MOST IMPORTANT PUBLIC CONSULTATION FOR THE KINGSBRIDGE COMMUNITY IN LIVING MEMORY so we all need to sit up, tune-in and respond.”
