A meeting was held last night for the local business community to discuss plans for the £1.4m funding secured for upgrades to Wrexham’s King Street and the surrounding areas.
As we reported last month pavements, shop fronts, walls and other infrastructure could all get a make over thanks to European Regional Development Funding secured by Wrexham Council.
32 people attended the meeting which was held to outline the scope of the scheme highlighting what can and cannot be included in the proposed works and to gather views and issues from the businesses
to influence and shape the proposals.
The scheme will now be developed over the next 2 months and will be presented as a draft at the next meeting of the King Street business community in September.
The Business Enhancement Grant scheme was also outlined giving businesses the opportunity to consider any schemes they wish to put forward and to state how theirs will help to create jobs.
The meeting was chaired by the Leader of the Council Cllr Neil Rogers who has previously said he wants people to be impressed by the town when they enter via King Street.
It is thought the likes of King Street and Egerton Street will benefit most from the cash boost.
The developments will begin in 2013 and are expected to be completed by 2014.
