City Centre Transformation, the proposals … June 14 #SpokesMtg

We hope (and expect?) that the Transformation proposals (to be announced in mid-May) will mark a major change of the city centre and its approaches, to a much more pedestrian and bike-friendly place. Our June 14 public meeting will hear the details and early reactions – and give you a chance to have your say and influence how the details develop.
