An artist’s interpretation of the future Cinderford High Street

Ways to improve activity in Cinderford Town Centre are being shared with local residents, businesses and organisations as part of the Town Council’s bid to Government for its Future High Street Funding.

As we face difficult and unchartered times with coronavirus and social isolation, many people are missing places such as High Streets for a chat, coffee and picking up some daily shopping.  The need to renew and breathe life back into places like Cinderford will be more pressing as they reopen, and we look to their long term future.  Cinderford has been successful in being shortlisted by Government, being one of fifty towns that are making the case for investment over the next five years.

Ideas include the reuse of the former HSBC bank into a local business hub, safeguarding the Methodist Church’s future and bringing in new community activities as well as addressing traffic within the High Street and creating functional social space for markets and events.

  • I like the ideas you have for the buildings. Please bear in mind the needs of people with visual impairments when designing the streetscape. Your design shows cars, bicycles and people all in the same space. This is very difficult for blind people to navigate, particularly where bicycles are concerned as they are so quiet that the blind are not aware that they are there.

  • consideration towards people with visual impairments in designing the new streetscape and being mindful of open spaces.
