Bolton has been awarded up to £20 million for Bolton town centre regeneration projects in the third round of the Conservative Government’s Levelling-Up Fund.
The bid, led on by MP Mark Logan and the Bolton Council, is part of the wider £1 billion masterplan for town regeneration to create more homes, more jobs and better connectivity.
The borough has already benefitted from over £50 million government Levelling-Up Funding to make the town even more competitive for the 21st century.
Commenting Mark Logan, MP for Bolton North East, said:
“I’m ecstatic to announce this fantastic £20m news for the future of Bolton. Bolton is clearly a priority for this Conservative government, and we arecommitted to cementing our great town as an even more attractive destination to work, live and visit”
“Since 2019, we’ve completed the £12 million revamp of the Octagon Theatre, secured £23 million from the government’s Towns Fund, £20 million for a new Bolton College of Medical Sciences and now, a further £20 million Levelling-Up bid for town centre regeneration projects.”
“I’d like to thank the previous Bolton Council administration for working together on this bid over a long period of time, and for the current Council team, we have a lot of work to do now to realise the regeneration of our town”
The third round of the Levelling-Up Fund draws on bids previously submitted by councils, up and down the country, in the first two rounds of the fund with projects aimed to be delivered by March 2026.
