Street lamps worth £100k installed in Dovercourt High Street this week
DECORATIVE street lamps costing more than £100,000 will be installed this week as part of a town’s regeneration.
Twelve heritage lamp columns will be added to Dovercourt High Street following £102,000 of section 106 money agreed by Lidl supermarket after setting up in the town.
They will run from Station Road to Hordle Place on both sides of the road.
High Street will be closed from Kingsway to Station Road, Dovercourt, while the lamps are installed. There will also be no waiting allowed in part of these streets between 6am and 6pm.
Work was due to begin in December but after speaking to traders Tendring decided to wait until Monday, January 7, to avoid disruption to Christmas shopping.
