Exciting plans to redevelop Feltham town centre have been put on display for residents and businesses to have their say.
A public consultation is under way on the Feltham Town Centre Masterplan and people are invited to comment on the first stage of plans before March 2, at Feltham library.
The exhibition details initial ideas, which include a new public square around the station to act as welcoming gateway into the town centre, improved family leisure opportunities by creating a leisure hub and the transformation of Feltham Arenas, the old stomping grounds of Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah.
Other opportunities include a retail mix with more restaurants and cafes, making green spaces more accessible to the public and developing new housing for young professionals and families, as well as improving cycling and walking access.
Leader of the council, Cllr Steve Curran, said: “Feltham has huge potential and we are keen to make sure that as the town centre develops, it prospers and generates facilities and opportunities for local people.
"We need residents’ input to make sure that his happens.”
Boards explaining the suggestions are on display in the Skills section of Feltham library.
A drop-in session will be held between 9am and 11.30am on Friday (February 27), alternatively the plans are also available on the council's website.
The masterplan will eventually be included in the West of the Borough Plan which is being developed during 2015-2016.
Feltham Library is open Monday and Thursday from 9am to 8pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 5.30pm, and Saturday from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
