Retail project funding joy

Have your say

Chesterfield has received a £10,000 government grant to help develop new shops.

The bid, put forward by Destination Chesterfield with the support of the town’s MP, Toby Perkins and Chesterfield Council, followed an earlier unsuccessful bid for the Portas Pilot initiative.

Peter Swallow, chairman of Destination Chesterfield, said: “This is excellent news for Chesterfield.”
