We did it! £22.4 million secured towards the future of historic Hereford
The #StrongerHereford board was launched to strike a deal with Government and we’ve now secured £22.4 million for regeneration projects in the city. We asked for your ideas and to put forward your proposals and you certainly delivered. It sparked a mass conversation about who we are and who we want to be.
This extensive dialogue has established priorities and aspirations for all our different communities which has accumulated into a commitment to levelling up Hereford. Grab a drink, make yourself comfortable and read our Town Investment Plan for the future vision of our city.

Through public surveys, open forums, hundreds of 1:1 sessions and this website, we put forward projects that boosted skills and learning, the visitor experience and living well locally. They not only fitted the bigger picture of a modern Hereford but the Government’s levelling-up agenda.
With the announcement of £22.4 million funding, Lauren Rogers, Chair of the #StrongerHereford Board commented:
“After many months of hard work from everyone involved, especially the residents, communities and businesses who put forward project ideas and worked with us to develop the Town Investment Plan, it’s fair to say we are delighted. This funding will deliver a programme of work that will help Hereford become a thriving city that is green, fair, connected, digital and cultural.” Read more….
