Redditch, Worcester and Hereford are three of a total of 26 towns in England that will share more than £610 million to boost their local economies and create jobs.

The Town Deals will help breathe new life into neglected areas or unused buildings by creating vibrant spaces for businesses, community events or much needed new homes.

Redditch has secured £15.6 million, Worcester £19.6 million. Hereford is set to use its £22.4 million investment to introduce a fleet of electric buses and regenerate the museum, library and art gallery into a unique modern visitor attraction.

Sustainability is at the heart of many of the schemes with new greener transport infrastructure including cycle paths and pedestrian walkways.

Communities Secretary Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP said: "I am announcing new town deals in 26 areas, backed by over £610 million investment from the Towns Fund. This will support locally-led projects to transform disused buildings and public spaces, deliver new green transport and create new opportunities for people to develop new skills. This is a boost for communities and businesses across England."
