Walton: Sites to receive summer season revamp
7:30am Tuesday 15th April 2014 in News
A SERIES of facilities in Walton will be revamped and repaired by Tendring Council in time for the summer season.
The town’s seafront Colonnade shelter is set to receive the bulk of the work.
A host of improvements will be made, including the installation of new lighting and CCTV equipment and new railings.
The Colonnade will also be given a new paint job, new paving and seating, as well as planters for palms and floral displays.
Work will also be carried out at Walton’s Bathhouse meadow car park.
Landscaping changes will prevent unauthorised buses from using the area unless they are given permission.
The council is set to improve the Kino Road toilet block too, giving it a new paint job and repairing the attached clock.
And an architect has been employed to draw up plans for Walton’s Millennium Square to open it up into the High Street and improve the town’s market.
A set of design options should be drawn up by Easter, allowing councillors to make a decision on the future of the site.
Town and district councillor Nick Turner said: “I hope this shows Tendring Council’s complete support for and to the residents, guests and visitors of Walton."
“We are always looking to improve our district and the performance of our services.”
