Residents in Ross and its parishes are invited to have their say on The Ross Strategic Action Plan a plan developed by The Ross Area Partnership, identifying a way forward for the local economy.
The recommendations are based on the needs and issues identified through the COMDEV health check and a series of consultations with key stakeholders.
Robin Symonds, Partnership chairman, says: It is hoped that the plan will unlock £500,000 for the Ross town area through the Market Towns Initiative: a 3 year regeneration programme funded by Advantage West Midlands.
This is expected in turn, to lever in an additional £500,000 in match funding to an investment of around £1 million in the local economy.
This is an exiting time for the people of Ross-on-Wye and the parishes.
Cllr Charles Mayson, Herefordshire Council Cabinet Member for Rural Regeneration and Smallholdings, said: The plan and the funding it will help to secure will act as a catalyst fro bringing much needed development into the Ross economy.
The draft Strategic Action Plan is available for the public to view at Ross Library, Info Shop, Tourist Information Centre and Ross Town Council, Ross Chamber of Commerce Website and Ross Community Website from Friday February 4th until Friday February 25th .
Members of the public are invited to comment on the plan by putting their views down on accompanying forms with the deposited plans or by mailing John Passmore, The Market Towns Officer. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
