Elmbridge Borough Council is undertaking works over the next 10 weeks to create a new flexible shared space on the high street in Weybridge.
The streetscape improvements will see new paving, street furniture, decluttering and a flexible shared space that both retains on-street parking while giving the town the option to deliver new events and markets.
The funding for the project which was developed in partnership with the Weybridge Town Business Group has been provided by the council’s local Weybridge Community Infrastructure Levy.
Cllr Christine Elmer, Portfolio Holder for Corporate and Community Development said,
“The Weybridge streetscape project is another example of our commitment to our high streets. This significant investment in Weybridge will lift the high street and support new footfall into the town.”
“2020 is going to be an exciting year for Weybridge with improvements in the town centre and a further £2.86m investment in the town to improve sustainable transport options between Brooklands Business Park, Weybridge Station and the town centre.”
Paul Povey, Chairman of the Weybridge Town Business Group said “We welcome the Elmbridge Borough Council investment in Weybridge. The streetscape project is a fantastic opportunity for us to continue our work in partnership with the council to make sure our town centre continues to thrive.
“We look forward to making use of the new flexible space with events and markets planned for residents and visitors and would encourage everyone to shop local and discover the great local range of businesses on our doorstep.”
