Regenerate St Helens Town Centre

This petition had 262 supporters

We the shopkeepers and residents of St Helens require the officials of the Council , including the CEO, Mike Palin, the Town Centre Manager, Gary Maddock and the whole of the elected Council to take their responsibilities for the management and improvement of the Town Centre seriously and to stop it becoming even more run-down due to a lack of investment in the town and to drive regeneration as a matter of urgency.  Shops are closing on a regular basis with those premises still occupied being mostly bars/clubs, charity shops, estate agents and solicitors. Due to the lack of people coming into town, even those shops still trading are considering closing because they fail to get the customers from passing traffic.  The degeneration of the town centre has a major impact on the old, the disabled, the infirm and non-drivers as the lack of most of the popular high street retailers in the town centre makes these and able bodied residents travel to Liverpool, Warrington, Widnes and other Cities or towns by bus or train for their shopping despite the time impact. It is now time to make the CEO  along with his Town Centre Manager and the Councillors on the Environment, REGENERATION, Housing, Culture and Leisure, Overview  and Scrutiny Panel earn their salaries by taking responsibility for returning St Helens to its former position.  This to include actively seeking to regenerate the town centre through attracting investment and developing a marketing strategy which includes attracting people from outside the St Helens area.
