Witham: Funding to improve shopping parade withdrawn
12:00pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
Money set aside to improve a run-down parade of shops was later withdrawn because it was not deemed a priority area.
Traders at the shops in Spa Road , Witham, have complained the area needs refurbishment to attract residents to use the area.
In 2009, the Community and Housing Investment Partnership (CHIP) Fund allocated £20,000 to be spent on the Spa Road shops.
But representatives of the Humber Road Estate Community Initiative (HRECI) were told a year later the money was no longer available.
Full story in the Witham and Braintree Times.
