£3m for High St

December 22 2018

KINGSWOOD will benefit from a slice of £10m thanks to a special Love our High Streets fund.

The West of England Combined Authority has put forward the money for  regeneration pilot projects in South Gloucestershire, B&NES and Bristol.

It is expected that around £3m will pour into Kingswood, aimed at transforming the High Street. Kingswood MP Chris Skidmore said: "It is particularly exciting to see proposals that look to the future and seek to increase access to digital training for the community, investment to kick-start a scheme to bring the derelict Tabernacle back into use, as well as long-term planning with the community to breathe even more new life into our treasured High Street."

The decision to fund the schemes was made by the West of England Combined Authority.
