Using £750,000 of additional Town Deal funding from MHCLG along with funding from Northumberland County Council and Blyth Town Council, this will deliver improvements to Bowes Street, Church Street and Wanley Street.
The funding was awarded to Blyth as one of the government’s 101 ‘Town Deal’ towns. Each has been allocated an additional sum to spend this financial year to boost the fortunes of their town and aid economic recovery.
Improve the user experience in the town centre encouraging better public access by walking and cycling. It will also provide improved parking provision and direct access for cars by improving vehicle flow and the number of trips made to the area. The perception of the area will be improved and will draw visitors into the town centre more effectively through an enhanced townscape which is more attractive and accessible.
The first phase of these improvements will commence in January 2021 and be complete by Spring 2021. Further phases are proposed in future potentially improving other parts of the Northern Gateway area such as Regent Street, subject to further funding.
