Chard Town Centre Public Realm Improvements

Griffiths has been appointed as the construction contractor to deliver the improvements at Fore Street, Holyrood Street, Boden Street and the Eastern Gateway. Improvements to the public realm in Chard will create a better town centre environment, worthy of Chard’s historic character.

The work forms part of South Somerset District Council’s (SSDC) High Street Heritage Action Zone programme that sees over £2 million of funding invested in the town centre until 2024, including public realm improvements, grants for the repair and renovation of historic buildings and shop fronts, as well as community engagement projects. More than £1 million of government high streets funding has been secured from Historic England, after the town was designated a High Street Heritage Action Zone, matched by funding coming from SSDC as well as a contribution from Chard Town Council.
