I’m delighted that Amber Valley Borough Council’s bid to this Government’s £675 million Future High Streets Fund, to help transform and regenerate our town centres, has been selected to progress to the next stage.
This means the Council can now access up to £150,000 of funding to progress a bid for up to £25 million to transform Heanor Town Centre. You can read the letter from the Minister with details about the project here. The fund received over 300 bids, so it’s fantastic that Heanor’s bid has been recognised and selected for progression.
I will continue to support this bid (you can read my supporting letter from earlier this year here), and I’d welcome any suggestions or priorities local residents have to help create the strongest bid, ensure we can make a real difference and attract investment to the town.
