We've begun work to develop specific visions for each of our three market towns: Selby, Sherburn in Elmet and Tadcaster.
We're identifying our towns unique focus, challenges and opportunities for our three towns. We've been working with business and community partners to agree a vision. These plans will attract further significant investment.
We're working with The People & Places Partnership to help us revitalise our town centres. Click here for more information on the Town Centre Toolkit.
Work in Selby and Sherburn in Elmet has begun. Tadcaster will follow in early 2020.
Why are we doing this?
Revitalising our town centres is a priority at both national and local levels. We want to make the best of our vibrant town centres. We need to understand our online retail community and take advantage of our connected location at the heart of Yorkshire.
The government announced a plan for the high street in 2018. This provides an opportunity to strengthen our vision for our towns and to unlock investment. This will support the significant population and economic growth of the district to 2030 and beyond.
