Consultation on Covingham Square improvements underway
The next stage of improving Covingham Square is taking place with a public consultation on plans to improve Covingham Square in April 2014.
Cllr Dale Heenan, “The improvements to Local Centres are a visible priority for the Council and local residents, and as Cabinet Member for this project and it being the area I represent I am very pleased that the public consultation on the improvements to Covingham Square has started.
Highlights include moving the ugly Recycling bins, adding new trees and planting beds, and significant enhancement to the large grassed area so it is a feature for the Square.
The current plans are fully costed and affordable, with support from Covingham Parish Council, and all three ward Councillors. This is a consultation, and nothing is set in stone so changes can still occur if people come forward with better ideas.
An well attended open session was held on Monday at Covingham School, and the plans are on display at the Messenger Pub. Cllr Richard Hurley and I will be hosting a drop in session at Covingham Library in St Paul’s Church between 10 and 12 on Saturday 14th December. The plans can also be downloaded here”
