Major boost for Tewkesbury High Street
Tewkesbury Borough Council has been successful in its bid for a share of £95m of government funding, after achieving ‘High Streets Heritage Action Zone’ status - and the funds will go directly towards bringing new life into the high street. £2m of funding was bid for by the borough council and work will now begin with Historic England to develop the plans and the budget required. The borough council plans to pour the money received into a range of projects, which will collectively regenerate the town through investment into its historic fabric.
The announcement comes just weeks after Tewkesbury and its surrounding area was revealed as one of only a handful of locations in the country to be awarded the government’s Garden Town status.
These projects will individually, and collectively, help to bring about positive improvements to the town centre and make the town a more attractive place for business investment and tourists.
