Town cen­tre re­vamp gets un­der way

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE start of multi-mil­lion pound town cen­tre re­de­vel­op­ment works has been wel­comed by the leader of a coun­cil.

The ven­ture is a £2.14 mil­lion project that will se­cure a num­ber of im­prove­ments in Bourne.

The plans in­clude the com­plete re­fur­bish­ment of Wherry’s Mill and build­ing a new ad­join­ing com­plex fea­tur­ing ground floor re­tail and com­mer­cial units, and 16 first and se­cond floor apart­ments

South Kesteven Dis­trict Coun­cil’s leader, Cllr Linda Neal said she was thrilled to see work had started on the project.

She said: “I am pleased that work has started on the core area project. I am look­ing for­ward to see­ing how the work pro­gresses over the com­ing months and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when the work is fin­ished.”

The scheme fits in with the sur­round­ing area and will be the first step in a much wider re­gen­er­a­tion scheme which will also in­clude the cre­ation of an area of ser­viced land suit­able for fu­ture devel­op­ment.

Con­sul­ta­tion work was done on the project in June 2010 in­clud­ing plans for a re-devel­op­ment that would en­hance the area whilst still be­ing in keep­ing with the his­tory of the town.

The build­ing works are ex­pected to run un­til spring 2013.
