Derelict buildings, lack of public transport and a poor choice of shops.

Those were the three things most people want to see changed in Wisbech, according to a new survey carried out in the town.

More than 600 people responded to a questionnaire launched as part of the Wisbech 2020 Vision project, which aims to secure a prosperous future for the town.

Respondents were asked to indicate the eight issues they thought were most important. They also had the chance to name the one thing they would most like to see improved in Wisbech.

Results from the survey will be presented in full at a summit taking place at the Boathouse in the town on Friday.

Other key issues highlighted in the responses included the need to reduce antisocial behaviour in and around the town, along with encouraging more employers into the area and promoting Wisbech both locally and nationally.

Tomorrow’s summit will review all the progress made since the 2020 Vision project was launched in the spring by Fenland Council leaders and NE Cambridgeshire MP Stephen Barclay. Detailed recommendations will then be drawn up to form an agreed action programme that is due to be formally launched in January.
