Improving the vitality and viability of Oadby, Wigston and South Wigston Town Centres is one of the current key corporate priorities for the Council. As such the Council employs a Town Centre Manager to co-ordinate and facilitate the work for the three centres.
Oadby & Wigston Town Centre Management comes under the Planning Policy and Regeneration team.
The Town Centre Manager is currently working with business groups in each town, so that businesses in each town have representation when it comes to Local Authority matters. Currently there is the South Wigston Chamber of Trade and Commerce, the Oadby Town Centre Association and the Wigston Business Group.
The Chambers/Associations are non-political bodies, led by local business representatives for the benefit of each town centre, supported by both the Borough and County Councils and other local stakeholders.
The Town Centre Manager has assisted each business group to put on events in each centre. The events planned for 2017 are as follows:
Oadby Motor Fest - Sunday 13th August, from 10:30am to 3pm along The Parade, Oadby.
Oadby Festive Lights Switch on - TBC Sunday 12th November, from 3pm to 8pm along The Parade, Oadby.
Christmas Capers Event - TBC Saturday 2nd December 3pm to 8pm along Blaby Rd, South Wigston
Wigston Christmas Lights Switch on - TBC Saturday 25th November 12pm to 7pm, Wigston town centre.
