The town council was contacted by officers at County Hall and they said the modernisation programme was ahead of schedule and replacement ones could be installed in the area before the end of the year if councillors agreed a design and contributed some funding.

After discussing the options available, a vote was taken and the majority of members chose the same swan neck design as the decorative ones currently adjacent to Coates Green.

They will now be extended along Main Street from the former NatWest bank to The Diamond Inn and also leading up to The Blackbird.
