Denny Town Centre – BBC Good Morning Scotland 15 December 2011
We would like to respond to comments made on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Good Morning Scotland’ on 15 December where current information on the town centre development was sent to the BBC however, they omitted to use this and have since apologised for an unbalanced account.
The regeneration of Denny’s town centre has made significant progress over the past year and work is progressing on schedule with the redevelopment.
Our original intention to see this redevelopment come to fruition saw us working with a preferred developer who, unfortunately, was unable to deliver what the community aspired for.
Falkirk Council therefore took the decision to move forward without a developer and following community consultation, we now have a clear way forward that will see a £6.5m initial investment in the first phase.
Work is ongoing in developing planning applications (with a view to submitting them in March 2012) for the site and a project design team has been set up to progress this.
Further public consultation will take place in January 2012.
