A STRETCH of Andover town centre will become pedestrianised at the start of ‘once-in-a-generation’ rejuvenation bid, if a new plan is given the green light.

Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) has lodged a planning application for the £1.2m Town Mills Riverside project, which will see the creation of a new park by the River Anton.

Vehicles will be rerouted as the proposals are to block traffic on Town Mills. Instead those looking to use Town Mills Car Park will enter and exit via a new junction off Western Avenue.
