Ipswich overlooked for government funding to regenerate high streets

Over 50 areas across the country are going through to the second phase of a multi-million fund that will transform their high streets and make them fit for the future. But high streets across Suffolk have missed out.

Every local council in Suffolk submitted at least one bid for funding, but each one was overlooked by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. As a result, Suffolk won't receive a penny of the £675 million Future High Streets Fund, aimed help local leaders to reinvent their town centres.

The successful towns will now receive up to £150,000 of new funding to work up detailed project proposals, based on their initial plans.
