Wellington regeneration traders meeting

Market stalls and local shops have received flyers advertising the meeting that will take place on Tuesday 16 March, 6pm at All Saints Parish Church hall.

At the meeting, local traders will be able to ask council officers questions about the regeneration works and raise any issues or concerns that they may have.

Works to improve streets and repaving in Wellington town centre is due to start this June on Market Square, New Street and the area outside Rasputins. This is part of the council's multi million Borough Towns Initiative programme to regenerate key local centres across Telford and Wrekin.

Councillor Andrew Eade, Leader of the Council, said: "This significant investment will replace Wellington's ageing pavements and roads that at the moment are uneven and regularly flood in places,

"This is a major part of the regeneration programme in Wellington and has been a long standing issue amongst traders and shoppers.

"I would encourage as many local traders to attend the meeting (Tuesday 16 March) to find out what works will be happening near to their business.

"Telford & Wrekin Council will do everything it can to limit disruption to local traders while repairs are carried out and I hope that they are in agreement that improvements are needed."
