Prestwich High Street – online consultation extended to 30 December

Press Release   •   Dec 11, 2015 14:50 GMT

Residents have an extra week to have their say on a £2 million plan to transform the environment around the main road through Prestwich.

Online consultation has been extended to 30 December, and there are still four drop-in sessions at Prestwich Library for people to view the proposals: they are on 12, 13, 17 and 20 December (all from 10am to noon).

Please note that Prestwich Library is closed from mid-day on Wednesday 23 Dec until Monday 4 Jan, so anyone who wishes to complete a hard copy of the questionnaire will need to submit it by 23 Dec.

To see the plans and have your say online, go to www.bury.gov.uk/prestwichhighst

The proposals, funded with £1.5m from Bury Council and £500,000 from Transport for Greater Manchester, aim to give Prestwich a lively high street, full of independent retailers, with a much improved environment and measures to tackle congestion.

The scheme aims to:

  • Improve the town centre environment for all
  • Improve pedestrian movement and accessibility
  • Support local businesses
  • Attract additional public and private investment
  • Reduce the impact of traffic while maintaining traffic flow
