Boscombe offered support to revitalise high street
9:00am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
Boscombe is being offered specialist support under a new scheme designed to help revitalise Britain’s high streets.
The area, which includes Pokesdown, is one of 300 new town team partners and will receive help from the Government and leading retail experts.
Cat McMillan, community regeneration officer for Bournemouth council, said: “This is fantastic news for Boscombe’s town team and provides a huge boost to help improve Boscombe’s high street as part of the ongoing work to regenerate the area.”
She said the funding would help pay for a review of the layout of Boscombe precinct and work to improve Boscombe street market.
Local Growth Minister Mark Prisk said: “There’s a real hunger in town centres across the country for them to be revitalised and remain attractive places to visit.
“So I’m delighted that from today over 300 town team partners will begin to receive a package of support that helps them breathe new life into their high streets.”
