A HOST of streets in the town centre will receive a makeover.

Work on Eastgate, Eldon Street, Hanson Street, Market Hill, Regent Street, Regent Street South, Royal Street and Church Street's footpath will start in June.

Yorkstone and granite will be used, new street lighting and new street furniture will be installed. Roads will also be resurfaced with improved crossing facilities provided.

A council spokesman said: "This work continues the invigoration of the town centre. Making these areas even more inviting will only increase the town centre's appeal.”

The work will be funded by the European Regional Development Fund and will last for approximately 11 months.
