It has so much to offer – exceptional road and rail connections, a Georgian High Street, the River Avon, beautiful countryside, a strong business community and a vibrant population. Yet for many years the town has suffered from the effects of poor planning, and a lack of investment, which has not helped the Town Centre. This has strangled the progression of the Town Centre and meant that has business has relocated elsewhere, all leaving a misperception of a Town with poor quality shops, traffic jams, no jobs and nothing for young people to do.
