We are working with Wokingham Town Council to make improvements to Market Place.
We've talked through emerging ideas for with members of the public, local groups and those with disabilities.
And the response has been overwhelmingly positive; with people happy that the area is being maintained and safeguarded as the heart of the town. They are also positive about proposals to include high quality natural paving stones.
There is a desire to ensure the public spaces are flexible, so they can be used for a variety of events and different types of markets. There was also interest in creating public art to reflect the town itself and the key events from its history.
Whilst this is a separate project to the Peach Place redevelopment they will complement each other and it is envisaged common themes will flow through the town.
