Shepshed Market Place Regeneration

The Site

Shepshed Market Pace has undergone a £2.5million transformation in a bid to make the town centres’ main high street more ‘pedestrian-friendly’. This development incudes the widening of currently installed paving, increased parking opportunities combined with a specific loading bay, newly installed soft landscaping and bike racks.

The Challenge

With the addition of new paving for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, concerns around joint stabilisation were raised by the client. It was understood by Shepshed Town Council that an increase in the amount of footfall traffic could lead the removal of the jointing sand and ultimately paver destabilisation, by water ingress to the eroded joints.


The Solution

Resiblock were consulted and were able to showcase the use of Resiblock products at High Street and Public Realm schemes through their 30-year history, to successfully stabilise sand joints under the pressure of both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Previous successes at Maidstone Public Realm and Colchester High Street ultimately saw Resiblock specified for the sealing and stabilising of block paving throughout the area.
