Wisbech Market Place enhancement scheme
Official Opening

The construction works required to deliver the long-awaited and much-anticipated enhancement scheme for Wisbech Market Place are virtually complete. After 9 weeks of reconstruction and two weeks early, Nick Barker of NB Construction officially handed over the Market Place to Wisbech Town Council. The Market Place is now fully open to the public and market traders, who have been patient during the period of the works. The final touch of the Wisbech Town Council crest to the central area will be added later. More »

The appearance of Wisbech Market Place – located in the commercial and social "heart" of the town – and the introduction of new and improved facilities, has been enhanced in its use as both a trading area and community space. The enhancement scheme includes new paving, benches, waste bins, planters and other decorative features.

The rationale behind the scheme is to deliver something in this key area of Wisbech, which should add to the vitality and vibrancy of the town – providing social, environmental and economic benefits for those who live, work, visit or are looking to invest in the town.

Associated with the enhancement scheme for the Market Place itself will be "pedestrianisation" of the Market Place area, whereby there will be no access to the Market Place from Church Terrace between 7.00 am and 4.00 pm each day. It is anticipated that the Local Highway Authority will be undertaking the necessary works – including street lining and the installation of gates and signage in the next few weeks.

Councillor Andrew Lynn, Chairman of the council's Wisbech Town Centre Committee says "I am extremely pleased that works to deliver this project are virtually complete. It is great when an ambition or a desire to make better the place where you live can be turned-into a reality. This has not been easy to achieve but the hard work and determination of council members and staff, plus liaison and collaboration with the contractor, suppliers and other relevant agencies, has paid-off". » Less

What to do in the event of flooding

According to the Environment Agency, over five million people in England live and work in properties at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, whilst more face flood threats from groundwater, surface water, sewers, and reservoirs.

At Gocompare, we have put together a guide to preparing for a flood and protecting your property

In extreme conditions you won't be able to stop flood water, and you should always put personal safety above attempts to protect property and possessions. Despite this, there are steps that you can take to keep water out, to buy yourself time to preserve property and possessions, and to limit the damage that flood water does.
