Cheltenham looks to extend Purple period
By Rob Freeman | 22nd December 2020
Cheltenham Borough Council is looking for feedback on its night time economy ahead of an application to renew the town's Purple Flag status.
The town has held the accreditation, awarded for standards of excellence in managing its evening economy, since 2016 and the council will be submitting a fresh application in January.
Councillor Andrew McKinlay, cabinet member for cyber and safety, said: "We are very pleased to have retained our Purple Flag status over recent years and hope to once again.
"Businesses and organisations have worked hard to offer safe and inclusive environments and adapt to Covid-19 regulations.
''We'd ask anyone who has a view on our night time economy to complete the short survey to help us further develop our night time offer."
Feedback from the online survey, which closes on January 20, will be used to provide a better understanding of how people use and view the town during the evenings, including changes due to the coronavirus.
Gloucester was awarded Purple Flag status for a third successive year in August.
