Town Centres Recovery Plan for East Hampshire

East Hampshire District Council has commissioned Heartflood to provide a Covid-19 Recovery Plan for the centres of Alton, Clanfield, Four Marks, Grayshott, Horndean, Liphook, Liss, Petersfield and Whitehill & Bordon.

As independent experts in town and city centres, Heartflood is asking for the views of local consumers and businesses to help shape the priority actions which will be recommended to the Council.

Why do we need a plan?

As well as supporting businesses to recover from the current pandemic, East Hampshire District Council is committed to supporting the ongoing development and long-term sustainability of all of its centres and this work will inform key future activities to achieve this.

Why your thoughts are important

Heartflood will be making a number of assessments and recommendations based on its specialist knowledge, but it is hugely important to gather the views of local businesses and consumers, such as yourself. Whilst specific responses will remain confidential, the information you share will play a key role in the conclusions reached and recommendations made.

Given the current circumstances and the urgent need to support businesses within each town centre, a detailed Action Plan will be produced and reported to the Council in June 2021.

How will the plans help my business?

A key part of the project will involve asking businesses and their customers about what they think would result in improvements to the economic performance of each town, with the intention of improving overall trading conditions for all businesses.

So how can I give you my views?

Heartflood wants the views of as many businesses and residents as possible in helping shape the plans and would urge you to complete the survey via the following links.
