SHOPPING precincts in three Weston estates will soon be treated to a major revamp.
Shops in St Andrews Parade in the Bournville, Loxton Road in the Coronation and Aller Parade in the Oldmixon are in for a massive makeover.
South Ward Neighbourhood Management and North Somerset Housing are working together to draw up final plans for the shops, after a huge consultation with residents, traders and police.
Neighbourhood manager Sara Brown said: “We will not be knocking any buildings down, just improving the look of the existing ones.

“We asked residents to draw on artist sketches of the three sites the things they would like to see improved.
“We will be making improvements like repainting shutters, putting up better lighting, new signs, community notice boards, plants and flowers and generally make the place look nicer.”

South Ward Neighbourhood Management is funded by the Government and is designed to target areas where residents are experiencing significant disadvantages and want an improved quality of life.
A board, made up of residents, police, councillors and other groups, has been set up to help run the team.
A final budget for the project has not been set, but should be known once the final plans have been drawn up, ready to submit for planning permission.
The project will be funded by the neighbourhood management team and North Somerset Housing.
If permission is granted by North Somerset Council, building work is expected to start in April next year.
