A number of projects to improve Alloa Town Centre have been agreed by Council today (22 August).
The Scottish Government awarded £683,000 to Clackmannanshire as part of its Town Centre Fund, which supports councils to ensure that town centres are more diverse, sustainable and successful in the face of changing and evolving retails patterns.
As part of ongoing consultation on Alloa Town Centre in partnership with Alloa First, CTSI and Architecture and Design Scotland, five projects that are transformational and important catalysts to further transformation and regeneration were identified for capital funding. They address town centre issues such as sustainable transport, congestion, pedestrian connections and anti social behaviour:
Cllr Craig Holden, Spokesperson for Environment & Housing said: “We want our town centres to be sustainable and thriving places where our communities can enjoy living and working, and this funding is an important step towards making improvements to Alloa. This list of projects has been chosen by working with our partners to identify issues that need addressing, and this funding is part of the bigger picture which will lead to the next stage of transformation for Alloa town centre.”
