Town Centre Strategy 

Nash Partnerships are working with Blaenau Gwent Borough Council in looking at plans for the town centes in the area. There message is below.

In developing a strategy for the five town centres in Blaenau Gwent, we are keen to get a sense of perceptions and thoughts about the area from local people - what people love about where they live, what they would like to see change and how they use social media. As well as the one to one discussions we are holding with a wide range of people and workshops in each town, our partner, Oggadoon, has set up a simple questionnaire to obtain broad views on the area and on social media use. It only takes a few minutes - we’d love to hear your views. The survey can be found via this link: https://carolinemacdonald.typeform.com/to/gJOvwf

Please also feel free to send us any comments or suggestions for the town centres at towncenres@nashpartnership.com
