We want to know what you think about your town. We are continuing to develop options and proposals for the identified projects that make up the wider investment in St Neots and it is vital that we continue to facilitate ongoing conversations with local people.
As this programme of investment continues, we will share key dates and engagement opportunities to have your say and let us know what future you want to see for St Neots town centre.
We're asking people who live and work in St Neots to join the conversation about the future of your town. As the programme moves forward, we want the community to join the conversation about the future of St Neots and work with us to develop a shared vision and consider options for the town.

Week-long engagement - December 2022
At the end of last year, members of the Market Towns Programme team spent a week in St Neots to engage with residents, stakeholders and the business community regarding the three Transport projects (High Street, Market Square and Road Bridge). The week of engagement included meetings with stakeholders and general engagement with members of the public, including a stall at the market on 1 December 2022.
This engagement was organised as a result of the detailed plans being drawn up for each project and an opportunity for local people to view and provide feedback, and see that local sentiment had been captured and included in the plans. The MTP team was joined by Cllr Lara-Davenport-Ray and Cllr Ben Pitt as they spoke to residents and traders at the market.
Market Square engagement - May 2022
The Investment in St Neots engagement team was out and about in St Neots on market day to talk to local people, visitors, market traders and businesses about options for the enhancement of the three public realm projects: the market square, the high street and the bridge. During the day, the team spoke to over 250 people about the scheme and collected feedback on the proposed project options.
In addition to the public engagement on market day, the engagement team held a stakeholder only feedback session and the proposed project options were also shared online alongside a short online feedback survey to allow those unable to attend, to have their say digitally. The feedback received from this engagement can be found in this report.
On Thursday 12 May 2022 the Future High Streets Project Team held a stakeholder drop-in session to share options for the three public realm highways projects. These projects are improvements to the Market Square, the High Street and the road bridge.
The projects team was also present at the St Neots Farmers Market on Saturday 14 May 2022 and spent the day talking with residents and local stakeholders to share more information about the options and allow residents to have their say and give feedback.
