Last week saw almost 300 Hackbridge residents, businesses and users comment on the detailed designs of the Heart of Hackbridge public realm and shop front proposals. An exhibition at Centrale opened on five days, including Saturday’s fantastic Open Day.
Hackbridge Open Day brought the high street to life with a sand pit at Equinox fishbar, Juice bike at the Savoy Cafe, free tasters from Asia Tandoori, a pirate treasure hunt, face painting and much more. £5 vouchers were given to the first 100 families to spend in local shops, boosting the local economy.
Almost half of the consultation visitors left written feedback, including their likes and dislikes of the scheme, what changes they’ve seen in Hackbridge during the first year of the Heart of Hackbridge project, and what they would like on a Hackbridge town sign.
