Mixed reaction for Cirencester's new Market Place

CURIOUS and concerned Cirencester residents turned out in their droves to inspect radical new plans for a £1million town centre revamp.
At a public exhibition at Bingham Gallery, a mixed reaction was given to the Town Centre Regeneration Scheme, which could get started in just over a year’s time.
As part of the plans, Market Place would be transformed into a flat "shared space" for pedestrians and cars, and the town’s market relocated to a pedestrianised zone by Cirencester Parish Church.
Ian Hartnell, from Cirencester, welcomed improvements but said: "This is the umpteenth time I’ve seen something like this presented and I hope it doesn’t stall again."
The scheme can be viewed and feedback given online at cirencester.gov.uk
