Public Realm Consultation
Kendal Futures, the regeneration
partnership for Kendal, is in the process of producing a
Design Guide for the public areas of
Kendal. This Guide will help steer development of the town’s
central areas to be more welcoming to both locals and
The aim is to make Kendal a more inviting
place, increase repeat visits and support local businesses. A more
attractive and better functioning town centre will boost
regeneration and bring benefits to the local economy.
Consultants Taylor Young have been appointed
to develop the guide and have held workshops (internal and
external) to help identify local concerns and opportunities
and have consulted young people and local businesses
using an on-line questionnaire.
The consultation so far has helped us
understand the issues and opportunities for Kendal.
