Bromley town centres receive regeneration cash

Wed 3 August 2011, 3:01 pm

Three town centres in Bromley have received a total of almost half a million pounds for improvements from a new fund run by London mayor Boris Johnson.

Bromley town centre has received £308,000, Penge got £70,000 and Orpington gained £90,000 through the Outer London Fund.

The money, from a £10 million first round pot, will be used to increase the attractiveness and economic competitiveness of the town centres in the run up to Christmas and the New Year.

Set up in March, the Mayor’s Outer London Fund is a £50m three year initiative to grow economic activity and drive employment in parts of London benefitting less directly from large-scale infrastructure investment in the capital such as Crossrail and the 2012 Olympics.
