ELLESMERE PORT TOWN CENTRE ALLEYWAY BENEFITS FROM REFURBISHMENT
10 February 2015 – An alleyway between Exeter Road and Cambridge Road in Ellesmere Port has undergone refurbishment as part of a programme of ongoing improvements in the town centre.
Local traders on Whitby Road had contacted the Council to help improve the well-used alleyway, which was in a poor state of repair and suffered from littering.
The Town Centre Improvement Advisory Body agreed to the allocation of funding to complete the project, which included resurfacing with a new tarmac surfacing and installing gullies and removable bollards at both end of the alley.
The works were delivered by local contractor W. E. Parsons from Victoria Road, Ellesmere Port.
Mayor of Ellesmere, Councillor Brian Jones, said: “Great credit must go to our council workers and contractor Parsons, who have vastly improved the entrance of Exeter Road and Cambridge Road. I hope this will enable the area to maintain its neat and tidy appearance.”
The improvements are contributing towards works to transform the heart of Ellesmere Port, prioritised in the Vision and Strategic Regeneration Framework of the Ellesmere Port Development Board.
The Council’s Executive Member for Culture and Economy, Councillor Stuart Parker said: “This alleyway is very well used, both by local residents to access their homes and by shoppers visiting nearby Whitby Road.
“The new smooth tarmac surface will make it easier for the area to be cleaned and I hope the traders who initially contacted us are happy with the results.”
Local Councillor Justin Madders: “It is good to see this alleyway being improved. It is very close to the high street and well used so anything that can be done to improve the image of the area is to be welcomed.”
Julie Simpson, a local landlord, said: “I am delighted with the work carried out by the council and would like to thank Jochem Hollestelle for listening to our concerns. As a result the alley is now much cleaner, safer and easier to maintain for all concerned, thank you.”
The improvement is part of a programme of works prioritising the town centre as highlighted in the Vision and Strategic Regeneration Framework of the Ellesmere Port Development Board. For more information firstname.lastname@example.org
