Local Conservatives are supporting capital investment in our Borough by progressing 30 regeneration projects total £5.44 million. Many of these are aimed at regenerating our towns, creating new job opportunities and supporting local residents into high quality affordable housing,
Some key highlights include the regeneration of Market House on Church Street in Ripley, investing in the replacement of the Swiss Tea Rooms in Belper, and refurbishing local playgrounds and play areas. In addition, to build on the nearly complete replacement Greenwich Park Pavilion in Ripley, the Conservative Council are now looking towards a replacement pavilion for Charles Hill Playing Fields in Heanor.
Conservative Councillors are also pledging a £1 million pound commitment to providing shared ownership houses, to give local residents the opportunity of an affordable first step into home ownership, as well as further proposals to develop surplus land to provide family homes.
The Conservative-run Borough Council is also seeking to provide a further £1 million to develop small industrial units to allow business start-ups to establish and grow within the Borough and is seeking to attract a hotel operator to Belper, both of which will provide new job opportunities.
Councillor Kevin Buttery, Leader of Amber Valley Borough Council commented: “I am very proud to announce the publication of Amber Valley Borough Council’s draft Asset Management Plan, which I believe, represents an ambitious and exciting set of proposals, which will make a real and positive difference to residents of the Borough.”
