East Yorkshire retail destination secures five-figure investment for post-lockdown trading
A new programme of investment is being made in facilities and infrastructure at a shopping destination in East Yorkshire.
The Flemingate centre in Beverly is undergoing a series of enhancements to enable businesses to safely resume trading following the lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Developer Wykeland Group has invested £70k in features such as the expansion of click-and-collect services, as well as the extension of the outdoor seating areas for the centre’s restaurants, cafés and bars to accommodate the need for social distancing.
In addition, the centre will feature COVID-19 safety signage, social distancing floor vinyls and marker strips as well as 30 hand sanitiser stations across the site.
David Donkin, property director of Hull-based Wykeland, commented: “Rather than react to these unprecedented times by retrenching, we have decided to continue to invest and make Flemingate an even more attractive, safe, convenient and welcoming place to shop and spend leisure time.
“We have seen this period as a time to make further improvements that will benefit members of the public and all the businesses across the centre, now and over the long term. We’ve given the centre a thorough makeover, with the safety of customers very much to the fore.
“It all means Flemingate is ahead of the game as retail, leisure and office operators within the Flemingate community reopen progressively over the coming weeks.”
