SHOPS on two Weston estates may soon get a facelift.

The groups of shops in Loxton Road, on the Coronation, and St Andrews Parade on the Bournville, will be refurbished if planning applications are approved by North Somerset Council.

Plans for Loxton Road, which has six shops including a Post Office, Spar and Jolly Roger's Off Licence, include removing the raised planters, which currently collect litter, and replacing them with cobble stones.

The parking area will be repainted and the railings will be replaced.

In St Andrews Parade the raised planters, which are currently used by drinkers and groups of youths, will be remodelled with large boulders.

The canopies on the shop fronts will be removed to open up the space and to prevent people climbing on to them and disturbing nearby residents.

There are also plans to redecorate the fronts of the flats above the shops.

Both sites will have the external walls refurbished, new seats outside, and the tarmac will be broken up by new surfaces in the hope of deterring skateboarders from using the areas.

New signs, cycle racks and lights will also be installed in both roads and the shutters at the front of all the shops will be painted.
