Lots going on in Huyton Village Centre

by Laura Johnston

The council is working alongside local businesses and other organisations to rejuvenate Huyton Village Centre.

In recent months the village has come to life with new traders and regular Foodie Friday events attracting hundreds of visitors. Alongside this, the council has pledged £1.75 million to make improvements to the public space in the village centre including plans to install new street lighting and improvements to the shop fronts on Derby Road.

In addition, installation of state-of-the-art CCTV has commenced across the village centre, which is due to be completed by Christmas, helping to improve security and for people to feel safe.

Plans are also progressing for two new restaurants which are due to open in the new year on Derby Road.  This will help to kick-start the night time economy and provide better choice for residents and visitors.

An online survey inviting you to share your thoughts on how Huyton should develop closed on Friday 11 January 2019, and the results are now being analysed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to take part.

Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “We have ambitious plans for Huyton Village Centre and want to ensure we provide the best facilities and choice for local residents and visitors.  To help us shape our plans, your views are crucial so if you haven’t already, complete the short online survey on the council’s website. I also look forward to seeing the plans progress over the coming months with better lighting and improvements to the shop fronts.”
