More than 300 towns want to be Portas Pilots

More than 300 towns are to fight it out to become one of 12 government funded Portas Pilots where each town selected will receive a share of £1 million to revitalise their high street. However the overwhelming response has led the government to offer a series of workshops to provide advice on preparing bids.

More than 300 towns want to be Portas Pilots

Organised by the Association of Town Centre Management, the half-day workshops will be held in London, Solihull, Bristol and Bolton and will provide insights into the background of the Portas Review and advice on making a good application.

Martin Blackwell, CEO of the ATCM said: "This is a great opportunity not just to make sure that the best possible applications are submitted, but to use the occasion to meet others who are passionate about their High Street and learn from each other."

Local government minister Grant Shapps added: "I would like to thank the Association of Town Centre Management for agreeing to host these workshops, which I hope will help town teams across the country put pen to paper, and their ideas on film, and show me their ambitions for reinvigorating their areas."

The deadline for bids is 30 March 2012.
