Oakengates is set to become the latest town in Telford and Wrekin to get a multi-million-pound makeover, it was revealed today.

Council chiefs are remaining tight-lipped about how much exactly will be spent improving the town but it is believed to be about £3 million.

Members of Telford & Wrekin Council are set to discuss their plans for Oakengates this week.

Council leader Councillor Andrew Eade said: "This week, another multi-million pound regeneration will be announced, this time for Oakengates.

"I hope to be able to announce it in detail this week.

"It will be subject to approval by the cabinet this week.

"I'm sure our proposals will be welcomed by all members of the council and by all residents and communities across the borough."

The revamp will be carried out as part of Telford & Wrekin Council's Borough Towns Initiative which has already seen work started or completed to give other district centres a revamp.

Work is under way on a new £8.5 million Wellington Civic Quarter and the town's streets are getting a makeover with a £1.1 million repaving scheme.

Work in Dawley has improved the High Street.
