Warwick District Council has warmly welcomed confirmation of a £10m injection from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for a programme of investment for Leamington Spa town centre. 

Receipt of the ‘Future High Street’ funding comes on the back of a business strategy. As part of this, the Council worked in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including Leamington Chamber of Trade, Leamington Town Council and BID Leamington. 

The ambitious ‘Town Centre Vision’ strategy will enable the Council to work with partners to transform and reconnect locations north and south of the river and kick start long-held plans to develop a Creative Quarter. 

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Place & Economy, Councillor John Cooke, commented:

“Securing this substantial funding is a massive boost for Leamington Spa as we respond to the challenges of the pandemic and the struggles faced by our retail sector. 

“It will also provide the infrastructure we need for a more connected and creative town centre, allowing Leamington Spa to realise its full economic and tourism potential.”
