Town centre audit to understand changes as it undergoes regeneration
We engaged with business and council stakeholders across Ilford town centre to understand their part in the town centre offer and how it would be impacted by large-scale developments that will change the town over the next five years. New partners were also engaged to help understand how the town centre will change with their arrival, especially with regard to the creation of an evening economy. An online survey was developed to gain views from users of the town centre as to what facilities they would like to see on offer. The results are shaping a new market offer and an events programme from 2020 as the public realm work takes place and new developments go live.
