|£30M Cash Boost for Coalfield Communities|
Coalfield Communities in England have received a huge boost following the Department for Communities and Local Government’s announcement of £30 million of funding over the next two years for The Coalfields Regeneration Trust. This will enable the Trust to continue supporting the social and economic regeneration of the English Coalfields.
Peter McNestry, Chair of the Board of Trustees said, “The Trust, recognises that effective regeneration can be achieved only in partnership with others. Forging practical links which can lead to increased investment in former Coalfield areas is an urgent task. This renewed funding provides the Trust with a platform from which to further develop our relationships with local authorities, the business community, the voluntary sector and people who want to improve their own communities.
