Have your say on Worcester Shrub Hill plans

Worcester Editorial 9th Feb, 2024   0

CITY residents can now have their say on ambitious plans for the major regeneration of Worcester’s Shrub Hill Quarter.

A six-week public consultation has been launched into a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which sets out proposals for the revamp of the 14-hectare site.

The plans include more than 500 new homes, new public spaces, and the capacity for the creation of up to 5,000 new jobs.

People can read the SPD and give their views on it at www.worcester.gov.uk/voiceit, or visit the Guildhall today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) to see an exhibition of the proposals in the document.

Coun Robyn Norfolk, chair of the City Council’s Place and Economic Development Committee, said: “The vision set out in the Supplementary Planning Document is for a dramatic regeneration of the Shrub Hill Quarter, one that will shape it into an appealing location to live, work and relax.

“The SPD focuses on the type of place Shrub Hill can and should be. It is essential that local residents, businesses and other stakeholders have their say, to help us to ensure we get this important document right.

“I would encourage them to go to www.worcester.gov.uk/voiceit or to visit the Guildhall exhibition.”

The exhibition will be open from 9.30pm to 4pm both days.
