Appeal to snap up old Stevenage town centre photos
AN APPEAL has been launched to snap up old photos of a town centre which could be used to shape its future development.
Stevenage Borough Council is asking residents to send in colour photographs of Stevenage town centre taken during 1958 to 1965.
The images will form part of a discussion on how historical features should be retained in any future planning development.
“Perhaps you have had a clear out when you have been getting out the Christmas tree or you have some pictures stored away, if so, please get in touch,” said borough councillor John Gardner, executive member for Environment and Regeneration.
“Your old photos could be a major influence on how the town is developed in the future. We’re particularly interested in the shop fronts around Queensway, the Town Square and Marketplace, so if you or someone you know has a colour photo that could help, why not do a good deed for your town?”
