Full list of English towns to benefit from £95 million high street funding09/14/2019
High streets in historic English towns and cities will be rejuvenated by a £95 million regeneration fund, the government confirmed today.
Disused buildings will be turned into shops, houses and community centres in 69 towns across the country.
The largest share of money, £21.1 million, will go to the Midlands.
It comes after Mirror Online highlighted, in its Town 2020 series, how residents in the Midlands and the North fear for the future of their town's industries.
Some £52 million of the cash will be injected by the government's Future High Street Fund.
A further £40 million will come from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the National Lottery Heritage Fund is providing £3 million.
Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan said: "Our nation's heritage is one of our great calling cards to the world, attracting millions of visitors to beautiful historic buildings that sit at the heart of our communities."
