Council To Improve Coronation Shelter

The Council is to spend £10,000 from the Community Safety Partnership budget improving the Coronation Shelter on the Strand.

Chairman Mike Hicks says he received a number of complaints from islander about the state of the building during the Council’s open day in the summer.

He told Councillors that the building was in a “tired and unloved state” and work was to be done to repair the broken windows with safety glass and upgrade the building.

George Pearson, the Town Hall press officer, says the work has been put out to tender and officers are receiving submissions from local, islands-based contractors.

The roof will be repaired and the builder will also install low-power solar lighting in the shelter.
