FUNDING for improvement works in Skelmanthorpe has been approved.
The Cabinet last night backed £42,000 for footpath work, new seating, plants and an information board.
Clr Peter McBride, Cabinet member for Place, said: “Small townships are as important for regeneration as large town centres.
“They give people a sense of their own community.”
Skelmanthorpe was given a £100,000 boost in 2008 and £58,000 of that has already been spent.
The remaining money has been agreed for improvements to link path to Elm Street – partial resurfacing, removal of street and planting new trees.
Access to the community centre will be resurfaced and the seat near the Commercial Street/Queen Street bus stop will be improved.
The village notice board will move to outside the Co-op and the funding will buy a village map board.
Design work will begin later this month and work will take place from March to June.
