Refreshed Redditch!

Work is to begin this spring on £800,000 worth of improvements to Redditch town centre which is hoped will increase the number of visitors to the town and ensure the local economy continues to thrive.

Work will begin in March on improvements to Redditch town centre. The scheme, which was agreed in 2016 is being funded by the county council and Redditch Borough Council and will cost £880,000.


The plans are on view at Redditch Library and include a new one-way system for authorised vehicles in the town’s pedestrian zone which will also change the access to parking bays. During the work pedestrian access will remain unaffected by vehicle access will be disrupted. However, local residents and businesses are being consulted to keep disruption to a minimum.


Councillor Ken Pollock, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy, skills and Infrastructure, said: “Worcestershire has one of the fastest growing economies in the country and investment in public realm areas is vital to ensure that the local economy continues to thrive and local shops and businesses flourish.”


“We are spending more money on improvement projects in Worcestershire now than at any time in the last three decades, and this further investment in a number of town centres, including Redditch, is designed to ensure they remain attractive, vibrant places where people want to visit, shop and spend time.”


Emily Knight, Branch Manager says “This substantial investment into the Town Centre is going to increase the number of visitors and bring a breath of fresh air to Redditch where the public can enjoy spending their time.”
