The very latest on those expensive ‘designed-to-rust’ planters on the London Road.
After all the fuss about a three-year-old audit – warning of sight issues for people coming out of side roads – it seems another inspection confirms that all but one of the artist- embellished containers will have to move slightly.
The ‘one’ singled out will have to go completely and could end up in a local park.
B &NES has to talk to adjacent traders – and the utilities about underground access – before confirming the adjustment but – if all goes to plan – the containers could be ‘handed over’ to the care of the local community very soon
They are an important addition to that stretch of the London Road – which already looks much better for the central reservation trees.
