High Wycombe has a great heritage, with some beautifully historic streets and buildings, but these are often forgotten under the daily grind of a modern town centre. We work with local community groups to make the town look better. We install hanging baskets, put up seasonal bunting and create attractive green spaces within the town centre. All our projects are ‘added-value’ – meaning they would not otherwise be provided by the local authority.
In addition to helping our town to look nicer, we also keep High Wycombe safe. We employ a full-time Town Ranger to run our Business Security Partnership, and our Shopwatch and Pubwatch schemes have over 100 active members. Last year, we dealt with 300 criminal incidents and recovered over £7000 worth of stock.
By raising the bar in terms of how our town is managed,
we can ensure businesses see the benefits of having an attractive place to trade, whilst the wider community experiences a greener, brighter, safer place to live, work and shop.
TVP has always had a good working relationship with HWBIDCo, focussing on projects that contribute to making the town enjoyable and, more importantly, safe for residents and visitors.
