Revitalised Town

Cleator Moor Town Deal

Revitalised Town aims to tackle the issue of underutilised buildings and improve the presentation and perception of Cleator Moor town centre, making the town more attractive to investors and providing skills and employment opportunities for local people.

A new public services and cultural community hub will be created by refurbishing and reconfiguring two existing buildings in the Town Square – the Town Hall and library.

The hub will look to provide a range of new facilities such as a cafe, exhibition and arts space, tourist information and reception point, a sound proofed digital media studio and services for youth provision and employability support.

The library would be reconfigured with reading space and internet access.

There will also be a programme of work to enhance the appearance and ambience of the Town Square with the aim of making it an attractive proposition for businesses and visitors.

A planning application linked to this project has now been submitted and can be viewed here: 4/23/2253/0L1 | Copeland Borough Council

Cleator Moor Town Deal

With a specific focus on the local economy, there will be an investment at the Phoenix Business Centre to ensure that workspaces are modern, flexible and adaptable to the changing needs of tenants.

There will be a link between the centre and the development of the Leconfield Industrial Estate (the Enterprising Town project) to ensure the provision of accommodation for businesses of all sizes and developmental stages.

The whole project will see improvements made to 2,495 sq m of public space, with 29 full time equivalent jobs created once all work is complete and a further 17 jobs created during the construction and works phase.
