Hereford is one of 100 places invited by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government to be part of the £3.6 billion Towns Fund, a scheme that seeks to support economic growth in towns and cities around the UK. Hereford is in line to secure up to £25m for regeneration projects in the city.

An independent Towns Fund board, backed by Herefordshire Council, has now been established to lead this work locally. The new group, known as the #StrongerHereford board, will connect with local people to create an ambitious vision. They will be asking residents, local businesses, colleges, schools, and many others to help them identify major projects that would bring about economic and social improvements.

In the meantime,  residents can submit ideas online here:

This is a great opportunity to make Hereford a greener place – so please put your ideas forward without delay!
