BRIDGWATER Town Board is asking residents and businesses to share their ideas for projects to regenerate the town.

Last week the Board, which is tasked with putting in a bid to the Government for up to £25m towards improvements to the town, published its vision for spending the money and invited members of the public to comment by completing an online survey.

The Board, which is made up of business and community representatives, has identified some projects from previously well received plans for the town’s future such as the Bridgwater Vision.

More details on these and additional projects can be found on the Sedgemoor District Council website

But before these ideas are compiled, costed and put to the Government, the Board is keen to ensure that it has left no stone unturned in selecting the front-runners among schemes that will make a difference to the town.

It has devised an online survey for people to suggest projects that require capital investment of £1m or more and which clearly fit the criteria for the fund.

The form can also be found on the website.

A spokesperson for Sedgemoor District Council, which administers the board, said: “We have been heartened by the response so far to the survey as it shows people really want to engage with this exciting opportunity for our town

“We are looking forward to seeing the suggestions people have for projects that might have been overlooked so far but which might be pivotal to the changes needed for the town to meet its future challenges."

The aims of the Board are to make the most of the opportunities Bridgwater has, revitalise its centre and improve accessibility.

The deadline for completing the survey is October 20 and the deadline is October 30 for submitting project ideas.
