Information about the investment strategy for Blyth Town Centre.
Please see the latest press release regarding the project - Blyth scoops extra funding for town centre scheme (09 Jul 20)
Many thanks to all those who came to the Showcase event at Westgate House in Blyth on Saturday, 29 February 2020 to give us your views. The comments collected from that event are being fed in to the final bid that will be submitted to Government - more information on that will be posted here over the coming months.
In the meantime we very much encourage everyone to continue to give us your comments and opinions via the "My Town" website. All of your views will be reviewed and will help us to inform the investment strategy.
Our aim is to create a productive, sustainable, welcoming and inclusive centre for residents, businesses and visitors. To help make this happen, we are working up a full business case application to the government’s Future High Street Fund to support our aspirations for Blyth Town Centre. We have recruited a team of consultants; Mott Macdonald, Aspinall Verdi, IDP Architects and Hall & Partners to deliver the business case and to create a deliverable investment strategy for the town.
We will use this webpage to keep you updated and to give you opportunities to feedback to us as plans develop. We look forward to hearing from you.

Blyth is also on a list of 100 towns who are eligible to apply to the government's Town Deal Fund, which gives an opportunity for an additional £25 million investment in the town. We will be working up our proposals for this over the coming months.
