Clay Cross Draft Investment Plan reaches second phase as residents have their say

There will once again be an opportunity to shape the future of Clay Cross by commenting on the draft Investment Plan as consultation enters its second phase.

This latest round of consultation will run for three weeks, from Friday 31st July to Monday 24th August and will ask for your views on the emerging plans for Clay Cross as highlighted by the community in the previous round of consultation.

In late June and July this year, the authority sought the views of residents, local businesses and stakeholders and these views have now been analysed and fed into the draft Investment Plan.

Key responses to the first phase of consultation included improving the town centre and its appearance, improving leisure facilities (specifically Sharley Park) and better management of traffic movements through the town centre, including improving pedestrian access.

As such, North East Derbyshire District Council is now seeking further feedback from the community on the future of the town as they bid for a share of the Governments £3.6 billion Towns Fund.

Councillor Carolyn Renwick, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth said, “I would like to thank all those who took part in the first round of consultation”.

“Your views and ideas have gone a long way to shaping how the future of Clay Cross will look and I urge residents, businesses and stakeholders again to make sure you have your say on the second round of consultation as your ideas and projects are forming exciting plans for the future of Clay Cross”.

“We have a fantastic opportunity here and if we are successful with the bid for the Government funding it will bring jobs, new facilities, resources and prosperity to the town”.
