WORK to transform Bromsgrove High Street, costing around £2 million, is set to get underway next month.
And Bromsgrove District Council say the scheme, part of the town’s wider regeneration project, should be completed in 2013. Funding for the new-look High Street was first agreed by the district council and Worcestershire County Council in 2010.
The design is still being finalised, but among the key priorities identified are the need for extra space, an improved surface for visitors to walk on, and better access to shops. The layout of the market stalls and lighting of the street, including seasonal decorations at Christmas, will also be improved, with the aim to provide a better shopping experience.
A total overhaul of street furniture, including benches and railings, has also been discussed as part of the scheme.
