Like any thriving town, Bury is set to grow and if we do nothing to keep its heart healthy it will die as its arteries clog with vehicle and pedestrian traffic trying to find its way in and out.

This is why the Bury Free Press is supporting the draft town centre masterplan consultation, launched last week.

It is the duty of everyone who lives, works and regularly visits the town to look at the masterplan’s ideas and take part in the process that will produce a definitive document to guide those planning the town centre’s future.
