Hopefully, some very good news for Ilkeston.
Ilkeston bid boost moving forward
A bid for up to £20m of government funding for three projects to help regenerate Ilkeston town centre looks set to be approved next week.
A meeting of the council’s Executiveon Tuesday (5 July) is expected to agree that the bid should be submitted to the nationwide Levelling Up initiative.
A report going to the meeting says that a public consultation earlier this year produced clear results that have helped shape the ambitious bid, with residents particularly highlighting a desire for a better range and quality of shops, including restaurants and services for children, and action over vacant properties.
