This is an exciting time for Aylesbury, county town of Buckinghamshire, and the focus of a multi-million pound improvement programme.
The town centre has seen major change in the last 5 years - and there's plenty more to come.
Aylesbury Town Centre Plan
The Aylesbury Town Centre Plan sets out a Vision for the town centre and outlines a programme of improvements for key areas of the town.
The development of the Plan has been led by AVDC, working with Aylesbury Town Council and Buckinghamshire County Council.
Improvements in 2015 and 2016
University Campus Aylesbury Vale will open in early 2016. AVDC has worked in partnership with Buckinghamshire New University and Aylesbury College to provide this new education centre on Waterside South, next to the Waterside Theatre.
Work to create a new space for restaurants, apartments and a public square in the heart of the town centre has started. AVDC and Buckinghamshire County Council have worked together to draw up plans for Waterside North.
New names arriving into Aylesbury include Office, H&M, Toymaster, Topshop and Metrobank.
