West Blackhall Street evening consultation event, Cafe Balfe, 16 May, 4 - 7.30pm

Friday 10 May 2019

Inverclyde residents are being given another chance to have their say on plans to transform West Blackhall Street at a public consultation in Café Balfe from 4pm till 7.30pm on Thursday 16 May.

The public consultation is part of an ambitious scheme to revitalise West Blackhall Street and promote investment in Greenock town centre.

The consultation is the next stage in the evolution of proposals originally developed in consultation with town centre traders and users last year.

A spokesman for Inverclyde Council, said, “Last year the council and our consultants, Ironside Farrar, worked up a series of proposals to revitalise West Blackhall Street.

“The vision to transform West Blackhall Street into  a vibrant area, which supports local shops, bars and restaurants, and is an appealing place to spend time. We also want to make it a safe and attractive route for cyclists and pedestrians to encourage more people to go there.

“We’re very keen for residents of Inverclyde and users of the town centre to help shape proposals and to hear their views. We previously held a consultation event during the day. This event is during the afternoon and evening to allow people who couldn’t make it to the first event to have their say.”

The consultation is funded by the Scottish Government through Sustrans Scotland’s Places for Everyone scheme.
