Wokingham Town Centre

I was pleased to see yesterday when I went to Wokingham to shop that the town centre was looking much better with more shoppers and an active street market again. It was also good to see the new Waterstones open for business. I do hope many of you will come into the town centre to see what is on offer in the shops before Christmas and to enjoy a coffee or a meal at one of the restaurants, cafes and bars that now offer us considerable choice of food and drink.

    A great improvement on the original, shame the Council treated the existing businesses so poorly during the very extensive and extended disruption when completing the pavement works.

    The actual re development I think has been handled very well by the Construction company in what was a very tight site,.
    I think the buildings are a bit too high though, Peach Street now feels more closed in due to the high gables fronting the road.
