Start date has been announced

We are very pleased to confirm that construction to refurbish the Market Place will now begin week commencing 31st July.

As you know the work will transform the heart of Wokingham into a continental-style space of café tables, market stalls, attractive trees and stylish paving designed for all.

The town centre is still very much open for business and our contractor Balfour Beatty will be working closely with all of you to ensure access is maintained at all times.
We will work with you during the construction keeping you informed about what is happening and when. We know there will be disruption but the new Market Place will be a fantastic space for both businesses and residents; a place where people can relax and where community events and entertainment can easily take place.

You may have noticed that the large memorial bench has been removed from the Market Place. By agreement with the Rotary Club, the bench has been temporarily relocated to Howard Palmer Gardens. Once the town centre works are complete the bench will be refurbished and given pride of place on the main walk way in the new park down at Elms Field.
