How would you spend £25 million towards the future of historic Hereford?
The #StrongerHereford board was launched to strike a deal with Government and secure up to £25 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’ve received proposals on how you would spend the money for the future generations of Hereford. Communities have shown that they would support projects that boost skills and learning, the visitor experience and living well locally.
Projects have now been shortlisted which fit this bigger picture as well as meet the Government’s levelling-up agenda. Watch our video for a taster of our vision for our city.
What is the Towns Fund?
Hereford is one of 100 places invited by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government to be part of the £3.6 billion Towns Fund. This scheme supports economic growth in towns and cities around the UK.
