The Winckley Square Community Interest Company (WSCIC) is asking the public for their opinions on the future of the square.

The group has been set up to facilitate the running of the square, and will draw up the first report on what should happen to to it. Further consultation will be sought at the beginning of 2012, before putting together a definitive plan.

The organisation launched their website yesterday which allows visitors to find out more about Winckley Square as well as participating by filling out a short questionnaire on the future of the square. The group also have a photo collection on Flickr and a Twitter account.

On the website, the WSCIC define their role as:

– To promote investment, sustainable regeneration and culture within Winckley Square and the surrounding conservation district.

– To operate as an independent company but work in partnership with Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council to identify realistic ideas and how to overcome barriers to restoration.

– To advise on funding streams and also act as an independent vehicle to attract funding, all of which will be invested into our vision.

– To represent all Winckley Square stakeholders (residents, commercial, leisure, retail, land owners, local authorities, historical and religious groups, visitors) enabling all voices to have their say in the future of Winckley Square.

– Develop and maintain a short, medium and long-term vision for Winckley Square.

The board of directors also includes representatives from Preston Council, Preston’s Business Improvement District and is seeking representation from Lancashire County Council, Preston Historical Society and UCLan.

You can fill out the questionnaire on the future of Winckley Square here.
