Government Grants Derby £15m For Two Major Projects

24 May 2021

Derby has been granted £15m by the government to help deliver two major city centre projects.

The Market Hall transformation and Eastern gateway projects have received backing from the Future High Streets Fund.

After previously receiving a provisional award, the Government has now confirmed that both projects will receive the grant.

The Future High Streets Fund is aimed at helping renew and reshape town centres and high streets across the country.

Derby’s funding will be invested in transforming the Market Hall into an attractive, flexible retail and leisure destination and to create a new gateway to the city centre.

The Eastern Gateway will transform the entrance to the Eagle Market, creating a welcoming arrival from the bus station. Public realm improvements will be undertaken with remaining funds.
