Contractors appointed for transformation of Worcester Street in Kidderminster Town Centre

News release issued:

The regeneration of Kidderminster town centre is progressing at pace with the appointment of a contractor to transform the Worcester Street area of the town centre.

Shropshire based building and civil engineering contractors McPhillips (Wellington) Limited has been successful in the recent tender exercise to deliver Wyre Forest District Council’s Connectivity Project which will completely change the look and feel of Worcester Street and the surrounding public spaces.

This project is being funded through the Government’s Future High Street Fund and is being progressed by NWedR on behalf of Wyre Forest District Council.

Councillor Dan Morehead, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration. Planning and the Green Agenda said,

“We welcome the appointment of this award-winning firm to help us deliver a further piece in the jigsaw to realise the Council’s adopted vision for Kidderminster. 

“This project will connect this area of the town to where the Glades Leisure Centre used to be, and to the area adjacent to the Former Magistrates Court – currently being transformed into a new Creative Hub - in an attractive and accessible way.”

McPhillips’ Contract Director Stuart MacKenzie said

“We’re incredibly excited to be able to play such an integral role in this transformational project. The scheme will breathe new life into this area of Kidderminster, making it more accessible and attracting more residents, more workers and more visitors to the town centre”.  

The main body of work will be completed by the end of this year with green landscaping to follow in the Spring.
