Tavistock residents are being urged to join a public meeting this month where they can get behind a new bid for lottery cash which will help rejuvenate our historic town centre.
The old Tavistock Police Station
A further £1 million would come from local partners and businesses looking to improve their historic properties and public spaces.
In total, it is hoped the project will provide a £2 million boost for the local economy.
Buildings which could be restored if the bid is sucessful include: The Old Police Station, The Guildhall, and The Pannier Market & The Auction Rooms. Market Street and King Street could also get some investment.
People are being encouraged to find out more about the lottery bid at a public meeting at Tavistock Town Hall at 5:30pm on Monday August 20 2012.
The event will provide local residents and businesses with more detail, and allow them to have their say on the proposals.
Tavistock Townscape Heritage Partnership (TTHP), which is made up of local councillors, businesses and residents, is co-ordinating the bid.
The application to the Heritage Lottery Fund is due to be made this October.
If successful, the project would start in 2014 and last for five years.
