Fenland and East Cambridgeshire proposals win market town funding
Chatteris has been given £92,000 to help make its town centre more attractive improving the appearance of street furniture and enabling refurbishment works to help businesses recover post Covid-19.
The Combined Authority Board approved funding for a raft of imaginative projects for market towns in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire at its meeting on Wednesday (25).
On the table was some £1.5 million for Chatteris, Ely, Soham and Whittlesey, all seeking to increase their pull for residents, visitors, and businesses. Future-proofing and history featured high on the town’s wish-lists, with heritage and digital connectivity, plus ideas for greener active travel and Covid-19 recovery.
