Benefits

This development will benefit all of Cinderford, with exciting regeneration plans to enhance the town centre. When planning consent is implemented, Trilogy has pledged more than £500,000 towards:

Improvements to the St White’s Road junction as requested by Gloucestershire County Council.

Landscaping measures and significant bulb-planting at roads and roundabouts leading towards the town centre. This could include a “mile of daffodils” leading into Cinderford to attract shoppers and visitors.

Town centre parking improvements and new restricted parking zones to ensure easy access for visitors and shoppers.

Upgrades to footpaths in the town centre.

A lighting scheme to illuminate the Triangle and landmark buildings in the town during the evening.

Redevelopment of the bus station with real-time passenger information screens – including a bus stop outside the new supermarket.

Public transport improvements.

Trilogy has worked with the district council and members of the Cinderford Regeneration Board to explore ways that we can help enhance the town centre.
Trilogy has also pledged money towards crime prevention publicity materials inside the store and measures to secure training and employment opportunities for local people.
