The public will have the chance to have their say on Honiton's high street at a meeting being held next month.
Members of the town’s chamber of commerce is inviting residents and shoppers to air their views, and concerns, at the meeting being held at the Mackarness Hall on Friday, November 23.
It comes after a three-hour meeting, held earlier this month, in which market stallholders and retailers discussed how to improve the high street, and which issues were affecting trade.
Tony McCollum, chair of Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce, said: “The meeting will start at 3.30pm with the members of the public.
“It will allow attendees to establish their ideas for the future of Honiton and improvements or overall changes that can be made to ensure the town has the potential of a future that meets the needs of its residents, keeps the town vibrant and attractive as a place to visit while allowing for growth over the next five years.
“At 6pm, a second meeting with members of the public will commence along the same theme.
“The first meeting is arranged to cater for the young with children and the elderly as well as those who for any reason cannot make the later meeting.
“The latter is for those who may be at work or college.”
Aside from the public, those invited include Honiton Town Council’s town management committee (via Councillor Duncan Sheridan-Shaw), town councillors, town clerk Mark Tredwin, and representatives of Honiton on East Devon District Council.
