Benches in Colne may be moved because they are 'unattractive'
3:29pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
FIVE benches in Colne’s Market Street precinct may be moved – because they are considered unattractive to shoppers.
Coun Neil Butterworth said he had been approached about the positioning of the seats outside the like of Fultons and Boots.
He told Colne area committee: “When you sit on these benches all you can see are cars and vans on the car park, not the planters and globes on the other side.”
Currently the precinct’s new owners, Pearl, are drawing up plans for an overhaul of the shopping centre.
Council leader Joe Cooney said the issue would be raised with Pearl, along with the possibility of installing automatic watering systems for the floral displays.
