Five possible concept designs were shown off to the public back in September and now the winning idea is being announced.

The plan will cost more than three million pounds and will bring various changes to the town.

  • More open space for bigger outdoor events

  • A bigger and better market

  • New paving

  • A new central sculpture

  • More seating for a 'cafe-culture' atmosphere

Heart can tell you first this morning the winning architects in the £3 million-plus scheme are Hall McKnight who were one of five short-listed practices.
