AspinallVerdi secures £60m from Future High Streets Fund

The regeneration consultancy AspinallVerdi has played a major role in securing almost £60m to transform town centres by advising on successful bids from the Future High Streets Fund.

Consultants at the practice provided strategic advice and expertise to support the bids from Tamworth Borough Council, Northumberland County Council, Amber Valley Borough Council and Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council.

The government announced the 72 areas set to benefit from £830m from the Future High Streets Fund last month.

AspinallVerdi secured £21.65m for Tamworth Borough Council by leading a multi-disciplinary team to prepare a business case and masterplan to support its bid to encourage new development and investment in Tamworth town centre.

And as as part of a multi-disciplinary team, managing director Ben Aspinall (pictured) and colleagues achieved more than £11.121m in funding by developing the Northumberland County Council’s application and wider town investment plan for Blyth town centre.

Mr Aspinall and his team also secured conditional offers of more than £6.3m and £11.7m for Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council for their two separate bids for Elland town centre and Halifax town centre.

AspinallVerdi also assisted with projects to transform Heanor town centre and also played a key role in the financial modelling and preparation of the Amber Valley Borough Council’s business case for the fund.

It’s incredibly rewarding to see the hard and collaborative work of AspinallVerdi, our consultant partners, great local authority teams and passionate communities pay off by achieving successful bids for almost £60m from the government’s Future High Streets Fund,’ said Mr Aspinall.

‘Our skills in research, analysis and financial modelling feeding into successful business cases has contributed to this success.’
