There’s a lot to think about in planning a new and brighter town centre for Stevenage and the SG1 team would like to hear your feedback.

We encourage everyone who has a stake or interest in the town centre to get in touch with us.

You can use this website to find out more about the proposals and please refer to our FAQ’s for a range of frequently asked questions.

Community involvement

During the summer and early autumn of 2019 Mace consulted with the local community on the emerging plans. All feedback was collected and considered prior to the finalisation of the planning application.  More than 350 pieces of written feedback were received, demonstrating that there is a very high level of interest in the regeneration of the town centre.

Consultation events included a three-day public exhibition, several consultations with world-leading businesses based in Stevenage, as well as a dedicated  event with the town centre business community. We engaged with young people through presentations to two primary schools and the Stevenage Youth Parliament. Consultation feedback revealed significant support for the regeneration of Stevenage town centre and high levels of support for the key principles that underpin the SG1 masterplan.

If you would like to find out more about the community involvement programme results and responses, please follow the link to download the Statement of Community Involvement (link to download) which is part of the planning application submission. You can also download the SG1 exhibition panels displayed at consultation events by clicking the button below.

Following receipt of the SG1 planning application in December 2019, the Planning Authority at Stevenage Borough Council will be carrying out an independent consultation. You can view the SG1 planning application documents and submit your views to the Planning Authority via the Planning Authority’s website.


We're keen to hear from as many people as possible about the SG1 proposals. Please use the response form below to let us know your thoughts. We'll be considering every piece of feedback we receive.
