Worcester High Street set for revamp

Author: Ashley Curtis - 06 June 2013

September has been pencilled in as the initial start date for renovation work to Worcester High Street, according to worcesternews.co.uk.

A 'worn-out' patch between the Elgar Statue and Pump Street is set to be completely resurfaced, forming just one part of a project set to cost taxpayers £315,000.

The resurfacing is also part of a longer-term plan to improve Cathedral Square, including the addition of new wooden and steel benches in the area.

In terms of finance, Worcester City Council has pledged an impressive £175,000 towards the costs while the rest of the funding is coming from Worcestershire County Council.

Councillor Geoff Williams, deputy leader and cabinet member for economic prosperity, commented on the figures: "It's vital we support our local businesses and encourage more people to shop in our city, so I am pleased to be recommending support for this important boost for Worcester's High Street."

The High Street's resurfacing follows details of a "total overhaul" of a major part of Worcester, with a new scheme planning to create more than 600 homes and an 80-bed care village for the elderly.

Reported by malverngazette.co.uk, a number of bars, shops and restaurants are all ready to be built in Sherriff Street with the project set to cost £100 million.
