PRESS RELEASE : £14 million to unlock Bromsgrove’s potential [January 2023]

The press release issued by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on 17 January 2023.

Post pandemic, Bromsgrove Town Centre needed a boost. With a £14 million award from the Levelling Up Fund, the town can recover.

The investment will be used for projects such as the redevelopment of the former Market Hall.

New hub for town centre

The first major project is the Market Hall, which has been vacant since 2010. It is set to become a vibrant cultural and commercial hub. This will bring new businesses and footfall into the town centre.

The new site will be home for:

  • flexible office space
  • multi-purpose events
  • gallery space
  • food stalls

Opinions on the project

Both the council and residents welcome the project.

One citizen said:

this is a really good use of the space, flexible working for collaboration and individual focus time.

The investment has also been welcomed by Councillor Karen May, Leader of Bromsgrove District Council. She said:

We are totally ecstatic that we have received this huge amount of funding. It is great news for Bromsgrove and means we can get on with making our vision, to massively enhance the prosperity and economic development of the district, a wonderful reality.
