What is the benefit of a town square?
The town square was identified as something the community would benefit from in the Blackheath Masterplan. A town square provides a central open space, somewhere to meet with friends, rest and relax while out in the village and enjoy occasional markets and events.
It is the social heart of the village, and provides a safe and vibrant place for the community and visitors to gather and enjoy Blackheath village. The town square may include seating, shade planting, gardens and even facilities like internet access, as well as providing a place for local businesses to activate and enhance their presence.
