“Ensure local people are not moved out.”
“I really support taking cars out of the area in front of the shops. Currently visitors stop inconsiderately and it feels dangerous to cross. I suspect people drive and stop because they can, but could probably walk if the street layout encouraged them to do this.”
“We want road, pavement and public realm improvements in District centre.”
“The community centre is health and wellbeing. well used but is in need of refurbishment.”

“I’m concerned that footpaths through the Knights Road space will get clogged up with football goers.”
“Widening access to the brook is a good idea, encourages outdoor activities, good for health and wellbeing.”

The original masterplan proposal included some flat blocks which are now replaced with houses.
The plan has been changed to separate private courtyards from the main routes to the stadium.
