* Councillors are looking for quotes for design work on Royal Gardens.
The mayor, Cllr Jon Haddy, said at the council meeting on Tuesday evening that the firm which had been successful had also done the renovation of a similar bridge near The Walls in Chester.
· Councillors agreed at the same meeting to seek quotes from appropriate firms to carry out design work for the future look of Royal Gardens, the green area opposite the Royal Hotel which the council now owns. One of the proposals there is to plant a tree to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
· Members also gave their approval to a donation of £500 to the food festival to be held at the Royal International Pavilion in October.
