Shopping for ideas
Public opinion is being sought on plans to turn council-owned land into a retail and leisure complex that could help to revitalise shopping in Ollerton.
Ollerton and Boughton Town Council is displaying ideas for a new town centre after it bought the former Courtaulds factory site on Rufford Avenue, Ollerton, because it was keen to protect the commercial viability of the town centre.
The leader of the town council, Mr Ben Wells, said councillors saw the 0.8-acre site as a key point in the town in maintaining a thriving environment for independent and traditional retailers who face tough competition from supermarkets such as Tesco.
