What we've done so far
Town Centre expert Chris Wade from The People and Places Partnership has carried out a range of research to look at local use of the town centre by both businesses and residents. From his research he’s created a report.
We have met with stakeholders, from regional and local level, to discuss their passions and priorities for the town. We will now work with local businesses and communities to deliver "quick wins" as well as, help shape longer term plans around key themes for the town centre. The 'Forward Framework' formalises this and includes a business plan which shows how partners will work together.
The ongoing work involves understanding three key elements: gathering evidence, creating partnerships and turning around the town.
We have already seen the successful partnership and delivery of Selby950. Our aim to continue to develop Selby town events that compliment the towns existing activity and build on from the Selby950 legacy.
A Selby Town Centre Action Plan 2020 has been prepared with input from local groups. We will deliver the Action Plan, over a period of 5 years, in partnership with local community and businesses.
