Further improvement works are nearing completion at the top of the town in support of local businesses and to encourage more visitors to Watford.
After the success of the main Parade works, which were completed in the spring of 2014, the council was able to secure extra funding to extend the works to include the swoop of shops which goes round to the subway of Albert Road North (161-185 The Parade).
All the civil engineering works – like the installation of new paving, seats and cycle hoops – are complete. New trees and a perimeter hedge around the site has been planted, with the fencing repaired and repainted. In the coming weeks, we will be planting a wildflower meadow, which will look fantastic in the summer.
Elected Mayor Dorothy Thornhill said: “This area looks great now – I really hope it will encourage more businesses to open up shop here, much like the LP Café, which is doing really well by all accounts. I know there are a couple of units under offer at the moment - fingers crossed these progress well and start trading soon”
