High Street makeover from supermarket cash continues
4:00pm Monday 30th September 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
NEW railings and posts are set to be installed as part of Dovercourt town centre’s significant facelift.
Money that was left over from the £85,000 sum handed over by Lidl in 2005 as part of the planning permission for its Dovercourt store, has been used on new developments in the High Street which also include maps, planters and light columns.
The new items were chosen to match the style of the town and were requested by retailers in the area and members of Harwich Town Council.
As part of the agreement with Lidl the cash has to be spent before 2014 or it will be given back and must be used to improve the High Street.
