Regeneration is not all about buildings and the built environment, the role of the community is key.
Get involved in the High Street
Community involvement is a central part of the HSHAZ.
From 2021-2024, there will be a series of community activities and events to engage in local heritage, learn new skills and consider the future of the high street. This may include:
Guided walks and tours
Talks, presentations and research projects
Local history workshops
Exhibition and community conversations
These will be delivered by SSDC and partner organisations including Historic England, Chard Museum and Holyrood Academy. If you run a local group or organisation and have a great idea for engaging others in the history of Chard’s high street, please get in touch through our Contact Us form with the HSHAZ Project Manager.
Details of planned events will be shared here when they are available.
Public consultation has been central to the Chard Regeneration Scheme since the very beginnings of the leisure centre project. SSDC regularly conducts consultations to get your views on key issues and runs surveys to ensure your feedback is an important part of our decision-making process.
Visit our Consultation Hub to easily find any consultations that are currently running.
