THERE could be a boost for users of the Droitwich Medical Centre after the latest town council meeting.
Plans were revealed for the authority to donate the remaining £730 of the 2018/19 budget towards putting two benches on the raised area outside the centre on Ombersley Street East.
The rest of the funding for the project would come from Droitwich Rotary Club which is contributing £680 and the two medical practices – Spa and Salters – which are based in the building would contribute £250 each.
Arrangements for the funding were made through Coun Alan Humphries and were revealed at Monday’s meeting and the benches are expected to be in place by next month.
Coun Bob Brookes said he was also in talks with Worcestershire County Council about getting the pavement resurfaced as residents had expressed concerned about the uneven pathways.
Under the plans bollards would also be installed near the underpass to make it more pedestrian-friendly.
The surgeries and surrounding area are well-used by parents with pushchairs, older people and mobility scooter users and concerns have been raised on a number of occasions about safety because of vehicles reversing.
