THE Town Estate is calling on Leicestershire County Highways to suspend its facelift of Melton Market Place until the end of the town’s peak tourist season.
Andrew Cooper, town bailiff, has asked Highways to halt the second phase of its resurfacing works in the town centre, which began on Sunday, June 2, following complaints from businesses and market traders.
The project is expected to cost between £100,000 and £150,000 and is being carried out in collaboration with Melton Council and the Town Estate.
Phase one saw the introduction of a resin asphalt surface in Market Place, new seating outside Boots and the replacement of concrete slabs.
The second phase of the work will be completed in four sections, from the Cancer Research UK shop to Superdrug and Select. The foundations will be reconstructed, drainage channels replaced and a new improved surface will be laid.
