SWADLINCOTE has launched its first Townscape event designed to pull in public opinion on how to revamp the area.
Members of South Derbyshire District Council were out in the market yesterday asking the public to fill in a project questionnaire as well as holding fun games for children.
The district council has won a bid for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and been invited to apply for a full grant of £400,000.
This money will be used to help improve the older buildings in Swadlincote town centre's conservation area and get people involved in the town's heritage. The Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Garden will also be re-designed.
The more views it can incorporate into the project, the better the chance of gaining the maximum funding.
