Leicester City Council continues renovation of city centre
By Emily Rooney
Leicester City council is continuing their plans to renovate areas of the city centre, this time by opening up a link between Green Dragon Square next to the market, and St Martin’s Square which houses popular restaurants.
This follows the earlier demolition of a building on the other side of Green Dragon Square, which facilitated a more open route between the square and the market.
City Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: “The improved route between Horsefair Street and Leicester Market that we created by demolishing an unattractive building has been very popular with shoppers – and I think this scheme would be too.
“We now have an opportunity to improve the connections between the market, St Martin’s Square and High Street.”
