Dorking town centre - creating a road map of opportunities
Councillor Simon Edge, Cabinet Member for Prosperity, said "The recent decision that Leatherhead town centre was the best fit for the funding criteria for the Future High Streets Fund nomination has highlighted a desire to explore opportunities for Dorking.
"Making the case for any future funding for Dorking will require an appetite for transformational change such as construction, demolition or additional housing. Is Dorking ready and willing to commit to that sort of change?
"Work is underway looking back at initiatives to date, prior to gathering the new ideas and proposals we need to create a roadmap of opportunities for Dorking, working closely with residents, stakeholders and Dorking Ward Members.
"As other possibilities arise, we will continue to consider them for both Dorking and Leatherhead and ensure that MVDC participates in supporting Mole Valley's town centres."
