Have your say

People are being asked for their views on a heritage centre for Higham Ferrers.

The idea was first raised several years ago for a property in College Street to be developed as somewhere to promote the history of the town, encourage visitors and give residents the opportunity to display private collections of artefacts and objects not usually accessible.

The council would like your views on whether you think there should be a heritage centre in the town

Higham Ferrers Town Council spokesman

There was some support for it at the time, but the idea never came to fruition.

However, the opportunity has come up again for a different property in College Street in the town.

After a number of residents indicated during the consultation for the Neighbourhood Plan that they thought the town should have a heritage centre, Higham Ferrers Town Council is now asking people for their views on turning 19, College Street into a heritage centre.

A spokesman for the town council said: “As part of their decision-making process, the council would like your views on whether you think there should be a heritage centre in the town.”

Anyone who would like to take part in the consultation can go to the Town Hall in Market Square, Higham Ferrers, or send an email to clerk@highamferrers-tc.gov.uk.

People can also call 01933 312075 or go online at www.highamferrers-tc.gov.uk to have their say.

The deadline for responses is December 31.
