Initial consultation ends at midnight tonight (Friday) on the recently launched Opportunities Downham Market.

Residents can have their say on the future of the town and possible uses of places such as the town hall.

Partners plan to work together and hope to tap into funding to help the town recover from the impact of the pandemic.

So far, the survey has attracted just over 300 responses and town mayor Jenny Groom said: “This is a phenomenal response and we are absolutely delighted that so many people have taken the time to give us their views.  

“People have submitted a range of ideas for the town and the town hall building, which will be a great basis for discussion as we start to draw plans together.

“We really want to hear from people, to see what they think of the town, what the positives are and where the areas for improvement might be.”
