Cash for Abergavenny Regeneration

£1.25 million is to be made available as loans for regenerating vacant sites and buildings in Abergavenny under a scheme whereby the County Council itself will borrow the money from Welsh Government.  The town’s businesses are also preparing a Business Improvement District scheme that could provide substantial further cash for improving the appeal of the commercial area, and alternative uses for over £3m allocated for a new library are being considered as the authority moves to merge library and other services into a ‘community hub’.  A Bryn-y Cwm Community Forum meeting at the St Michael’s Centre on 16 February (7.00pm) will be discussing some of the changes taking place in the planning and improvement of this part of the county.
