Council leader Sharon Taylor said: "We're delighted to have opened the centre and would encourage people to attend to learn more about all the regeneration programme and what we have lined up to transform our town in the coming years."

Displays at the centre are set to change regularly over the next few months, and visitors will have the chance to see a full 3D fly-through video of the developments, a scale 3D printed model of the town and design their town of the future out of a unique LEGO map of the town centre.

Plans for a larger launch event - set for August - will be shared shortly.
