I have welcomed £19,030 to clean up high streets across Mansfield and Warsop, as the Government announces it will spend almost £10 million across England to improve local high streets.
The funding will improve the quality of high streets across the country, helping to attract more residents and visitors so that local businesses can continue to thrive. It will be used to buy tools such as litter pickers and brushes, as well as providing training for residents on how to remove graffiti or tackle fly-tipping.
I will also speak to Mansfield District Council about making good use of the Future High Streets Fund – a £675 million pot of money to help local areas modernise their high streets and town centres. This funding will make it easier for local communities to enhance our local high streets, and make sure that they are places where the community can come together.
Our high streets are at the heart of our local community. I know that times have been challenging for many town centres across the country lately, and Mansfield and Warsop are no different. But, the funding will ensure that we keep high streets in our area looking their best, making it easier to encourage more people to return to the high street.
