City Centre Neighbourhood Plan unveiled

The City Centre Neighbourhood Partnership will launch an ambitious 3-year community plan at the City Chambers on Monday (24 November). The event will also play host to an interesting exhibition of nursery school children's photos of what they think is 'good' and 'bad' about the city.

The main aim of the plan is to improve the quality of life for people living in the City Centre by developing programmes of activities and initiatives with other partners such as the Police and the NHS which will deliver better neighbourhood services.

The plan has been drawn up following a series of consultation events that involved listening to a wide range of city centre residents, workers, students, and visitors who told us what they think are the issues affecting the quality of life in the area. These included:

? Improving the cleanliness of city centre streets and public areas

? Protecting, supporting and promoting the smaller retail areas in the city centre

? Improving city centre pavements, roads, and drainage

? Providing a more visible police presence in the city centre

? The city centre remaining a living city centre where residents have access to a full range of services
