£5.45m Regeneration Scheme Approved

A multi-million pound scheme has been approved that will help transform the face of Workington. The Derwentside Renewal Area Programme will play a major part in regenerating the town, in tandem with existing schemes such as the £70 million rebuild of the main shopping area. Allerdale Borough Council members agreed four recommendations at a recent Full Council meeting that will see at least £5.45 million channelled into the area over the next 10 years.
