Rotherhams High Street transformed
Heads are turning on Rotherhams High Street with the completion of the latest effort to transform empty shops ugly frontages into something to be admired and appreciated.
Urban Canvas, “official” graffiti artists from Nottingham, have completely masked the four boarded-up units on the High Street that have remained empty since private-sector owners of businesses such as Fabric Forum left more than eight years ago.
Rotherham Borough Council’s director of Planning and Regeneration, Paul Woodcock, said: “For years these units have been neglected by their previous owner and it’s great to see them so dramatically improved by the artwork. The long term plan will be to bring them back into use, however until this is achieved it is important to improve the appearance of this part of the town centre.”
