The High Street Advisory Group has been meeting in preparation for an Exhibition scheduled for 11am on Saturday 18th February at the Merry Bells. At this meeting, plans will be put forward to the community for comment and the reasoning behind them will be explained.

The main focus of the work has covered the following:

  • Development of a Village Square to be a welcoming, relaxing centre and a focal point for activities such as the Christmas Fayre. Ideas include plantings to hide garage area and to create a welcoming atmosphere, a community wall with mosaics including designs from the Primary School, seating area, and a ‘green wall’.
  • Support for the shops and restaurant: how best can we help the businesses to succeed as without them we wouldn’t have a centre to attract residents
  • Parking: how can we more efficiently use what parking we have to help residents and the shops? A survey of usage is about to be carried out by the Neighbourhood Plan group which will show who uses parking during the day, residents, shop employees, commuters or others/shoppers.
  • Campaign “Wake Up to Wheatley”: both Thame and Woodstock have organised successful campaigns to develop awareness of the village centre, what’s there, how to access it by footpath and where to park.

LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE EXHIBITION IN THE MERRY BELLS ON SATURDAY 18th FEBRUARY AT 11AM
