HARD on the heels of the Heaton Street health clinic and the £3 million Co-op development, more plans are afoot to change the look of Gainsborough town centre.

Market Street and Lord Street could be pedestrianised by 1993 under a partnership scheme between West Lindsey District Council and the County Council costing an estimated £350,000. At this stage it looks as if initial work on the Market Place could begin next year.
