Masterplan for Heanor
A regeneration Masterplan proposing a range of potential opportunities to bring about long term economic development for Heanor town centre is now available on the Amber Valley Borough Council website.
Amber Valley Borough Council commissioned the study, which outlines a long-term vision for Heanor. The Masterplan puts forward a strategic development plan to deliver a regenerated town centre where people want to work, live, learn, shop and socialise in more attractive surroundings and safer streets.
To guide future developments Amber Valley Borough Council will need the support of the local community and businesses, to be partners in this forward-looking project, and to aid in boosting confidence to signal the transformation of our town centre.

The Heanor Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme was introduced to offer shop traders in the town the chance to re-vitalise their business premises with a grant to help with the costs of new signage, doors, windows, paint work and brickwork. This is proving hugely popular amongst traders in Heanor and is contributing towards the masterplan vision. Click here for more information on the Heanor Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme
