The South Bank regeneration aims to double the size and economic impact of Leeds city centre by delivering 35,000 jobs and 8,000 new homes.
Also included is a new £10m urban whisky distillery, bottling plant and visitor centre operated by Douglas Laing & Co.
The first round saw a number of councils, charities, businesses, and public projects awarded almost £125,000 to take innovative steps to tackle littering in their communities.
The plans include 2,500 new homes, 20% of which will be ‘affordable’. York Central is one of the largest city centre brownfield regenerations projects in the UK and the plans also include new residential, cultural and business neighbourhoods in the city centre.
‘Firms need to ensure that energy challenges are covered in their strategies and have clearly defined actions, targets and budgets against them.’
‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get housing moving in the right direction and get sustainability on the agenda.’
James Brokenshire said that their garden communities programme has the potential to provide over 200,000 new homes by 2050.
‘Regeneration of this nature is hugely exciting and adds further to our commitment to Scotland. ‘
The project will transform north Manchester from Angel Meadows to Queens Park.
