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. In March 2015, the minister announced £2m for regeneration projects across Wales.
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.
