In a bid to make ever reducing WCC Town Centre Capital improvement funds go further the Warwickshire Towns Network have teamed up with civic crowdfunding platform Spacehive. The exciting new initiative offers individual Warwickshire Towns the opportunity to bid for County Council funding to support capital projects that they feel would benefit them specifically. In order to secure funding however, community and private sector investment and engagement is imperative. This change in the economic landscape is becoming commonplace in nearly all European, Central and local government funding opportunities. Alcester Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Partnership are working on potential projects that we can put forward to improve Alcester town centre infrastructure with particular focus on expenditure that will assist us to increase footfall in the area. Any ideas for projects or pledges of support would be gratefully received. e:
