The Mayor visited March town centre last week to hear about the exciting progress being made on the town’s transformational Future High Streets Fund work

The Combined Authority has invested £2 million in backing the March plan.

Steve Barclay, MP for North East Cambridgeshire, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, and Dr Nik Johnson, Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, visited the town on Friday (21 January). They were accompanied by Fenland District Council Leader, Cllr Chris Boden, Deputy Leader, Cllr Jan French, and Portfolio Holder for Social Mobility and Heritage, Cllr Chris Seaton, along with March Deputy Mayor and Town Councillor Ray Jack.

The visit was an opportunity for the District Council to showcase the plans for its £8.4million March Future High Streets project and explain more about the individual regeneration schemes for Broad Street, the riverside, Market Place and Acre Road area.

The group discussed how the ‘once in a generation’ project will enhance existing assets to create new and inclusive spaces for locals, businesses, and visitors, and heard how grant funding will be used to help property owners bring vacant shops into use and assist in the conversion of upper floor space into town centre living.
