Southwark Council/Canada Water/Surrey Quays £4bil Masterplan for a new Town Centre is approved. Its clearly on a far larger scale though I suggest its worth looking at these plans some of which are representative/comparable with what Bournemouth/Boscombe is looking to achieve on much smaller scale.
Main focus for Boscombe must be improved transport links, available parking and considerations for electric/hybrid cars for future.
Perhaps the Council could consider introducing ‘Resident Parking permits’ for ‘Boscombe’ residents meaning parking for Visitors/Tourists will need to be in designated parking areas and/or in created specific free 2 hour designated road parking spots nearer to the town centre for shopping etc. Bicycle lanes encouraged with bicycle ‘docking points’ for hired bikes to be returned/ picked up from to avoid being abandoned.
Shops/Creative hubs/leisure facilities and strong Community presence to instil pride and Volunteering opportunity for a great new Town Centre.
