Wigston Town Centre Masterplan Issues and Options Paper

Wigston Town Centre Issues and OptionsThis page explains and provides links to the Wigston Town Centre Masterplan Issues and Options Paper.

The Issues and Options stage of the study has involved the generation of different levels of intervention or change in each of the areas or sites identified through the Baseline Report. This has been informed, by the baseline research, discussion, best practice and professional knowledge and experience. The draft options were changed in the light of the outcomes of the options workshop, and then taken forward for further assessment as set out in this report.

The built form within the town centre is relatively compact with smaller retail and residential units along Long Street, Leicester Road and Moat Street. These buildings provide a good frontage onto the street some displaying high quality architectural features.

The town centre is clearly an important provider of local services – with banks, solicitors, and especially estate agents in plentiful numbers. Leicester Road is clearly an attraction for these uses, although such uses do not necessarily contribute to the vibrancy of the shopping experience.
