In a small office in Denny town centre, plans are being hatched to build a new town square that will be tailor-made for residents.
Icecream Architecture is now based in the town regeneration office above the TSB bank and is inviting anyone from the community to visit and share their views on what they would like to see created.
The new square is planned for where the octagonal bank building currently stands. Icecream Architecture was appointed by Falkirk Council last month to work with Denny residents and consider options for what could be built. The project is being funded by a grant from Creative Scotland and initial plans should be revealed at a public meeting in July next year.
The Falkirk Herald visited the regeneration office on Tuesday to find out how the project was progressing.
Paul McDonald (32), who is based in Denny each Tuesday and Thursday, said: “We want people to visit us so they can be part of the process. We want to find out what people will use the square for before we come up with a design,”
“There are different options. We will essentially be starting with a blank canvas.”
Ideas already put forward by residents include having a space for an outdoor market or a new location for the town’s war memorial.
Icecream is not involved in designing the Falkirk Council-approved building that will eventually replace Church Walk, but can pass on comments.
Residents can visit the regeneration office to share their views on the town centre each Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
