Residents in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, have named metal railings
as a main feature that would improve the town centre.
Work has already begun to cut down 32 trees from the town's high street that has severely hindered shops and businesses. They caused problems such as obstructing the view of CCTV cameras and will be removed as part of a £2 million regeneration project.
The council will replace the trees with better street lighting and benches as well as the brand new metal railings which will be completed in 2013. Despite the improvements, residents will miss the trees.
Kate Price, from Sidemoor, told the Bromsgrove Advertiser: "It's good for the shops, but not for the environment. It's a bad thing and it just looks dull. It needs something nicer."
Once installed it is hoped that the railings do not suffer the same fate as some in the Lancaster Gate area of London which were severely damaged after a £70,000 Porsche Carrera smashed through them.
