Rachel Sadler started this petition to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council

Tunbridge Wells used to be a thriving and busy town, with many shops and attractions. 


However, things have changed for the worst in recent times. Thanks to austerity and a troublesome economy, budgets have been cut and many shops are either closing or struggling. 


Thankfully, things aren't all doom and gloom- a coalition of concerned groups, including Tunbridge Wells Liberal Democrats, recently stopped the exorbitant Calverley Square project of a new theatre and office block from coming into fruition, saving our town from ruinous levels of debt.


Plans are also afoot to improve things further in the town. What I think would be helpful is to create a general market in Calverley precinct in the centre of town, incorporating the existing farmers' market, to encourage footfall and to drive more people to Central Market and the surrounding shops. 

In fact, the top of town could be named the Market Quarter. Camden Road and the Pantiles are established areas of Tunbridge Wells already, so it'd be sensible to follow this pattern through.


Yours sincerely
