Stowmarket residents asked to have their say on town’s wayfinding

Posted by Communications on 11 November 2022 | Comments

Residents, business owners and community groups are being asked to come together and share their views on the vision for Stowmarket.

Following the recent What’s Next for Stowmarket event, Mid Suffolk District Council is inviting local people to contribute to a study looking at how visitors and the local community explore, navigate, and discover Stowmarket town centre.

The first public event is taking place on Thursday 17 November at the John Peel Centre between 11am – 1pm, with further events, a pop-up stand at the market, online forums and message boards providing further opportunities for residents to have their say.

This feedback will form part of research into identifying Stowmarket’s unique qualities, the town gateways, how people move around the town and find key cultural assets, the visitor experience on arriving to the town, and the link between Stowmarket’s green and urban spaces.

The aim is to help enhance what makes Stowmarket unique as a market town, and support future delivery of schemes to promote creativity, innovation and culture in the town and surrounding area.

Mid Suffolk District Council have commissioned consultants, Counter Culture to undertake this vital research taking place between Autumn 2022 and Spring 2023.
