Vibrant and Viable Places
Vibrant and Viable Places is our regeneration framework.
Vibrant and Viable Places is the result of a review of approaches to regeneration in Wales and further afield and extensive consultation with partners.
Local authorities will share more than £100m for regeneration schemes from 2014 to 2017. The fund will be invested in town centres, coastal communities and Communities First areas.
The framework seeks to get the best out of every pound we spend in terms of mainstream funding like health and education.
An additional £7m will go to town centre related projects that tackle poverty. This fund has been ring fenced for projects in the top 10 per cent most deprived areas in Wales.
A further £1m has been allocated to the Town Centre Partnership Fund which will help boost 20 town centres across Wales.
In January 2017, the minister announced £3.7m for regeneration projects across Wales.
