Swindon has been awarded £19.5 million for town centre regeneration projects.
The money, from the Government’s Towns Fund, will go towards six major projects. The town is one of 101 places to successfully bid for cash from the fund.
The six schemes are:
- Refurbishment of the town’s Health Hydro
- Redevelopment of the Carriage Works
- Creating new studios at the Carriage Works
- Improvements to the Brunel Centre market
- Public space improvements, including walking and cycling routes to connect the Designer Outlet and North Star with the town centre
- Enabling infrastructure for the next phase of Kimmerfields regeneration project
Richard Newland, chair of the Swindon Town Deal and director of branch and workplace development at Nationwide Building Society, said: “The projects that are in development will be a real boost for the town centre and a positive step forward for the wider area. I look forward to continue working with the expert Town Deal Board to bring these projects to life so the whole community can benefit.”
Cllr David Renard, leader of Swindon Borough Council, said: “I am absolutely thrilled that the Government has seen the potential of these projects and this funding will be instrumental in helping Swindon to bounce back from the challenges thrown at us all by the pandemic.”
