Below are some of the thoughts and points discussed in the development of the Lydney Draft NDP.
There is a vision to improve Lydney Town Centre to increase footfall & customer spend (including restaurants and venues). The retail provision should support the community as best as possible, reducing the need to travel to Gloucester/Chepstow or Bristol or out of town.
Things to think about: Does Lydney need a pedestrianised area for outdoor cafes and safe circulation? Does it need more green/people spaces? Does it need improved customer access? Will additional and improved retail units improve the Town Centre? Can Lydney to Aylburton be seen as a single attractive High Street? How can more local produce be made available to help the local economy and provide sustainable food supply. How can Lydney attract more tourist spend? What sort of shops would improve the shopping experience? Where is the overlap with transport policy? What about issues related to parking/cycling/pedestrian access?
