Feltham is a leafy suburb with a rich transport heritage, as well as celebrity links But it's commonly known as the home of the Young Offenders Institute... How can we change this unfair image?

We want to improve negative perceptions about Feltham, and tell everyone what a great place it is to live, work, shop or visit. Its future is looking bright with some major transport improvements planned, and a Council co-ordinated Master Plan being drawn up which will establish a strategic vision for the area. But these plans need to be firmly rooted in the local community and communicated widely. Businesses also need some practical support, and Feltham's famous son, Freddie Mercury, deserves wider recognition than the poor memorial pictured here!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Feltham has benefitted from the recent redevelopment of the shopping centre, and investment from Network Rail . But, with a lack of community groups, Feltham businesses and residents are not in a strong position to influence the future of the town or make the most of the opportunities that are on offer.
To address this, we have a four step plan that will bring great benefits to all involved:
1. set up a Town Team - a group of local visionaries who can help drive a Master Plan for Feltham, guaranteeing long term regeneration
2. work with the Town Team to create a new identity for Feltham, focusing on its rich heritage and natural assets
3. attract new visitors, primarily through honoring Freddie Mercury, Feltham's famous son, with a new and fitting tribute
4. encourage local residents to support their high street, through the production and distribution of a business directory
