Town centre businesses in Farnham are being asked to give their views on the town and how it can be supported and improved.
This is part of the first stages of preparing a new strategic plan to provide a vision for the town’s future prosperity.
The survey - which has been commissioned by Waverley Borough Council, Farnham Town Council and Surrey County Council – is being delivered to businesses this week (13-14 June) and was produced by RegenCo, a specialist place-shaping consultancy that helps design regeneration projects to maximise both financial returns and community benefits.
In order to understand what the Farnham community’s priorities are for the town over the next 25 years and to ensure local needs are identified, the council will also be seeking views through a number of consultation workshops and engagement events during the summer and the autumn.
This work will help to form a consensus vision of the town’s future and conclusions drawn from the consultation exercises will help shape a new strategic plan for Farnham, building on the recently-adopted Neighbourhood Plan. By considering the town in a more joined-up way, this will provide a detailed roadmap for future development and help secure funding for key transport infrastructure improvements and inward investment to the area.
The Farnham strategic plan web page is available at: www.waverley.gov.uk/farnhamstrategicplan and will be regularly updated with new information and details of future engagement events.
