Market Place Regeneration

The Market Place regeneration project will improve the appearance and car park layout of the Market Place and introduce new and improved facilities, enhancing its position as a key community space in the heart of the town centre.

The scheme includes new paving, seating and trees, and refurbishment of lampposts as well as the installation of EV infrastructure for future Electric Vehicle charging points.

It will also address existing issues with the Market Place, such as drainage.

The works are due to commence on Monday 9 January and are expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete, weather dependent. The Market Place will be closed to public vehicles from Sunday 8 January.

Enhancement works include:

  • Resurfacing and re-lining of the car park
  • Widening of the northern footway
  • Repairs and replacement of public realm elements such as benches and bollards
  • The installation of Electric Vehicle infrastructure for future EV charge points
  • New bollards to open and close the marketplace to public vehicles
  • A reconfiguring of the car park layout to maximise spaces under modern regulations
