Heanor has secured a major regeneration boost through the Government’s Future High Streets Fund and been awarded £8.59 million as part of an initiative to kickstart investment and redevelop the area.
The £8,592,837 award is part of £17.8 million town centre regeneration project, funded by partners to transform and adapt Heanor to deliver a sustainable future.
Amber Valley Borough Council has been working closely with town partners and stakeholders to develop the project to bring transformational change to the borough and secure a slice of the Government’s £675 million Future High Streets Fund.
The fund was established to help towns across the country respond to changes in retailing and to regenerate town centres as attractive places to live and work for the future. The council could only put forward one market town and identified Heanor as the Amber Valley location with significant need and the opportunity to make the biggest difference for its future by securing the grant.
The project will be delivered over the next three years and encompass three complimentary areas to develop facilities, generate opportunity and support jobs in the area, view the latest plan.
Amber Valley Borough Council, Heanor and Loscoe Town Council, Heanor stakeholders and developers have worked together to secure the bid to bring positive change for the town and invest in its future.
The award is part of development works to support the market towns and ensure Amber Valley residents have access to quality facilities on their doorstep.
