VIDEO: Horsham’s West Street £500,000 scheme details confirmed

Horsham District Council have today confirmed the direction the half million pound West Street Enhancement Project will take.

Key inspiration will be drawn from the Wealden woodland edge, where people would have gathered to trade horses, reflecting Horsham’s early history.

A ‘wave’ paving design will be adapted to create a horse theme, drawn from the name ‘Horse-ham’, and text in the paving will highlight items of historical interest.

Horseshoes will be in place to contribute the overall branding and way-finding in the street.

Feature lighting will highlight specific architecture in the town centre.

Hobart Paving Company has been selected as the contractor for the scheme and work is to start on the project this week (beginning Monday September 2).

Flower baskets and pots in West Street, Horsham were removed ahead of the imminent works in the town’s high street.

The hanging baskets will be replaced with a number of ‘trough’ planters.
