Fareham Borough Council is looking for residents willing to make time to come along to small group sessions being held from August. The purpose of the sessions is to share thoughts and ideas that could improve Fareham Town Centre and Portchester District Centre. Those residents selected for giving up their time will be rewarded with a voucher.
We are not only interested in those people using either Fareham or Portchester centres, but also those who are not. We are also particularly interested in speaking to those groups who are traditionally harder to reach, such as young people (16-23) or parents (18-35).
The work is part of a number of pieces of research taking place over the summer that will help inform visions for the futures of both Fareham town centre and Portchester District Centre. The sessions will help the Council understand what people like and don't like about the centres and what could be done to make them more appealing.
Each session will involve between six and ten people and should last between an hour and ninety minutes. Timings of the meetings can be flexible depending on the needs of volunteers. Participants will receive cash vouchers as well as refreshments at the sessions to thank them for taking part.
Executive Member for Planning & Development, Cllr Keith Evans says, "The views of residents are important to understand when planning for the future of Fareham Town Centre and Portchester District Centre. We are particularly interested in hearing from young people and young parents about how they think we can make the town and district centres better able to meet their needs."
