CRUMBLING footpaths are set to be repaired in Stratford’s town centre.
Warwickshire County Council will start work on High Street and Bridge Street next month.
Some of the works will take place overnight to minimise disruption and are expected to be complete in March.
The work has been funded by the councillors’ delegated budget grant scheme – a sum of £35,000 allocated to each county councillor to spend on projects benefiting their communities.
Stratford South ward councillor and current town mayor Kate Rolfe donated her grant to the repairs.
She said: “Stratford boasts a lively, vibrant town centre. Pedestrian access, ensuring people can safely walk around the town and visit the shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, is key to the local economy. We met highways officers to ensure how any work carried out would most benefit the town.”
Stratford West councillor Jenny Fradgley also allocated her grant towards the works.
She added: “Stratford enjoys a global reputation and profile and brings many thousands of people to Warwickshire every year. We cannot take this for granted. I was pleased to contribute my grant towards ensuring that the pavements are safe and look good and contribute towards a very positive experience for visitors.”
