On Friday 19 July, the Rt Hon David Lidington CBE MP visited local businesses in Aylesbury’s town centre, where he was able to see the positive effect that investment in the area has brought about.
Mr Lidington, the MP for Aylesbury, met business owners and staff from shops and food & beverage premises in Hale Leys Shopping Centre, Kingsbury and the High Street.
He also had a meeting with Councillor Julie Ward, Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) Cabinet Member, and Diana Fawcett, the Aylesbury Town Centre & Regeneration Manager, where plans for further development of the town centre and support for local businesses was discussed.
Cllr Julie Ward commented after the meeting:
“It was good to hear first-hand David’s genuine interest in Aylesbury town centre. Not only did he have questions about the current state of trading, but he was also open to hearing ideas and suggestions for future development and initiatives to support town centre businesses.”
