The area surrounding Wrexham Bus Station is set to receive a £1.4m facelift in 2013/14 it has been announced today.
Pavements, shop fronts, walls and other infrastructure could all get a make over thanks to European Regional Development Funding secured by Wrexham Council.
Wrexham Council said they would be consulting with local people and business owners to ask what people would like to see.
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.
Leader of Wrexham Council Neil Rogers said that the bus station is the first sight many people see when they enter Wrexham from public transport and that he wanted people to be impressed by it.
Wrexham Bus Station underwent a much needed regeneration from being a row of metal bus stands to a fully covered building housing shops, a hairdressers, Chinese restaurant and bar back in 2002 thanks to £3m of Welsh Government funding.
The new developments will be discussed by Wrexham Council’s executive board next Tuesday.
