Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership

Anyone who lives, works, trades, shops or provides services in Aylesbury town centre has a stake in its future. Central to this is the role of the Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership. Since its formation the Town Centre Partnership has brought together local government, businesses, residents and local organisations. The result has been a programme of initiatives which have helped to transform the area, improve safety, support businesses, attract new investment and new retailers and increase footfall.

The Partnership provides the opportunity to work together, to explore cross-promotional initiatives, develop business performance and a platform to raise issues, ideas and concerns that are pivotal to the success and development of the town.

Annual membership for a small business/organisation starts from only £30 and includes:

  • Weekly updates for food and beverage operators providing information about events in the town, including activity levels at the theatre i.e. occupancy, type of shows, typical demographic of each show so that staffing levels can be planned.
  • Monthly updates about town centre issues i.e. footfall, planning applications, shop changes, transport updates, road closures and key issues in the town
  • Quarterly meeting invitations –this gives you an opportunity to network with other town centre businesses, hear about projects and events in the town including the big projects i.e. key development sites. This is a chance for you to discuss any concerns you have about the town.
  • AVDC press releases affecting town centre issues
  • Special offers from Waterside theatre
  • The opportunity to get involved in events in the town
