Newlands shopping centre refurbishment complete
NewRiver’s £230,000 refurbishment of the Newlands shopping centre has attracted three new independent retailers. Yaxley Hair and Beauty, Vapers Cove and Hair for You have all recently signed leases, leaving just two retail units currently available at Newlands.
The makeover has focused on revitalising outdoor areas to create a more vibrant and spacious shopping atmosphere. The work included installing new benches, lighting and bins, planting blossom trees, and installing modern wood-style cladding around individual retail units.
Two large outdated and unsightly canopies made of concrete, metal and glass have been removed, to create more spacious and welcoming communal areas.
Stuart Mitchell, director of NewRiver, said: “NewRiver is a long-term investor in Witham and we hope that this is evidenced by our significant investment to improve the centre for our customers and retailers. and prides itself on offering the strongest convenience-led shopping offer.
“These improvements will enable the Newlands Shopping Centre to continue providing an excellent convenience-led shopping offer to the local community for years to come.”
