Over 100 towns in England will be given up to £1m each to boost regeneration, the Government has announced.

The £80m fund will help support projects such as creating new green spaces, pedestrianising streets, setting up community hubs and creating pop-up business spaces.

Communities secretary, Robert Jenrick, said: 'Our Towns Fund will help to share prosperity across the country and level-up. This £80m funding for immediate investment is a real boost for our towns and will help them thrive with investment in transport, technology, skills and culture.

'It will give towns across the opportunity to drive economic growth and improve prospects for their communities, which will be vital as the country respond to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.'

The £80m is the first round of funding from the £3.6bn Towns Fund. Chosen projects include £1m to demolish unwanted buildings in Newcastle-under-Lyme (pictured) and £750,000 to improve the high street in Burton on Trent.
