Have your say on Brackley High Street area revitalisation

Closed 26 May 2024

Opened 15 Apr 2024


We are asking residents and visitors to let us know how they feel about the Brackley High Street area and what improvements they would like to see.


Brackley is a unique market town based on a proud heritage and boasts independent businesses, boutique shops, quaint eateries and more. West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) are keen to establish a clear vision for building on Brackley’s strengths to ultimately enhance the community and sustainably grow the economy.

Residents and visitors are being asked to share their ideas about enhancing Brackley and any improvements they would like to see made to the high street. 

Nationally, high streets across the UK are facing many challenges and many people are using them differently to how they have done in the past.

WNC’s Brackley Town Centre Manager has been working closely with local businesses, organisations, and Brackley Town Council to champion the local community, to harness the pride in the town and to establish opportunities to improve the local high street and benefit every local resident, business and visitors.

We need your help to shape ideas for these improvements and have set out a series of questions to understand your current and future uses of Brackley High Street and how you’d like to see the high street improved.

What do we mean by the Brackley High Street area?

The Brackley High Street area refers to the general town centre location where shops, cafes, restaurants and other local facilities exist. For the purpose of this engagement this includes the following streets/roads: 

  • Banbury Road,
  • Bridge Street,
  • Draymans Walk,
  • Halls Lane,
  • High Street, and
  • Market Place.

How responses will be used?

Your answers will be summarised to inform our partners and therefore help the Town Centre Manager, local businesses, organisations and Brackley Town Council to develop and prioritise High Street area revitalisation projects including promotion of the High Street and Town Centre, and adapt the High Street area experience to meet the needs of the local community and visitors.
