Transforming Towns Placemaking Grant 2022-25
Welsh Government placemaking funding for the mid-Wales region will see an investment of £5.08millon to help revitalise Powys and Ceredigion town centres over the next three years.
IMPORTANT: The current programme closes on the 31st December 2024
The Welsh Government Town centres: position statement (May 2023) sets out the policy and range of support for revitalising our town centres.
The Transforming Towns programme is a partnership between Powys County Council, Ceredigion County Council, and the Welsh Government, and aims to reimagine and recreate buildings and open spaces to create resilient and thriving town centres.
The Transforming Towns Placemaking Grant provides capital funding for local businesses, social enterprises, and public bodies to enable a broad and flexible programme of support for a wide range of projects that can help to rejuvenate town centres across mid-Wales. The type of projects can include green infrastructure developments, public realm improvements, installing digital infrastructure in town centres, to internal and external commercial and residential property improvements and much more.
Potential projects will need to satisfy eligibility criteria which will include demonstrating clear links to a current Town Place Plan or Town Centre Strategy. Also, potential projects will need to satisfy the Transforming Towns Placemaking Grant Framework criteria.
Applicants can discuss potential projects with their local project officer who can advise whether the project could be eligible and help with the expression of interest process.
