East: Towns Get £10,000 Funding For High Streets
15 towns across Suffolk and Norfolk are getting a share of 5 and a half million pounds in funding to help improve their high streets.
Hundreds of towns across the country are being offered support that will help them revitalise their high streets, Local Growth Minister Mark Prisk announced today.
Following applications by local MPs, over 300 Town Teams have signed up to become Town Team Partners, and will benefit from a package of support, which includes help from the Government as well as advice and support from leading retail experts.
The Town Teams Partners will receive an immediate boost, with national event to be held in Birmingham tomorrow by the Association of Town Centre Managers.
Mr Prisk said the extra support would help the teams to strengthen their leadership on the ground, and enable them to try new ideas on their high streets to make them more attractive and competitive.
The towns in Suffolk getting £10,000 each are Brandon, Felixstowe, Halesworth, Southwold, Stowmarket, Newmarket, Woodbridge, Sudbury, Ipswich and a joint bid from Saxmundham, Leiston, Aldeburgh.
The towns in Norfolk getting the funding are Diss, Thetford, Great Yarmouth and North Walsham.
