Icon for pdf Pride of Place Cons Report with Responses [853.25KB]- This survey has now closed. The full survey results and consultation responses have been included as part of an Expression of Interest application that was submitted by the District Council into Historic England's High Street Heritage Action Zone programme on the 11th July.  The bid includes a number of projects that address many of the areas picked up in the comments and feedback provided through this survey.
