Plans to transform Romford town centre have been given the go ahead.

Havering Council’s highways advisory committee looked at proposals to revamp Victoria Road and The Battis yesterday (Tuesday) and decided to proceed with a detailed design of the plans and a consultation.

The changes are part of a plan to open up public spaces and revamp unused areas.

Part of South Street between the train station and the new Visitor Centre has already started as part of the first phase of work.

This included repaving and making improvements to lampposts, benches and bins.

When this work is complete the council will look at Arcade Place, between South Street and The Brewery, to make it look more attractive and brighter.

The public square next to the Visitor Centre, at the junction with Western Road, has already been repaved.
