The Huntingdon office of Barker Storey Matthews has welcomed the announcement that St Neots is applying to benefit from a slice of central government funding allocated for improvovements to high streets.
Huntingdonshire District Council’s bid is to secure funding to boost St Neots town centre through the Future High Street Funds (FHSF) initiative.
Success would mean accessing a pot of more than £5 million of central funding to use, with other public funds.
While welcoming the district council’s announcement, Barker Storey Matthews also recognises the need for investment in Ramsey and Huntingdon.
Stephen Power, director of the company, said, “We have a long-standing association with commercial operators in St Neots - investors, developers, landlords and business occupiers.
