Total Reuse CIC were invited to attend the first meeting of the new Breck Road Community Village action group on Sunday 7th September.
Local business owners, Councillors, and the BIC Business Connector called the meeting to discuss how the area could be regenerated.
The section in question runs from the traffic lights at the junction of Breck Road and Belmont Road down to the Priory Road junction. There was a lively discussion with local Councillors confirming that all business owners are behind the scheme and there were also plenty of ideas.
The group agreed that a priority was to find out who owned the empty retails units and engage them in the refurbishment of the shop fronts whilst also exploring the opportunity to install hanging baskets to brighten up the road.
More information to follow.
