RivingtonHark has been appointed by Shropshire Council to implement the regeneration of Shrewsbury’s town centre.

Yesterday, Daniel Kawczynski MP welcomed representatives from RivingtonHark, the company appointed to implement Shropshire Council’s successful LUF bid, to his office in Parliament. He made it clear to them that the success of the LUF bid will be instrumental in not only transforming Shrewsbury’s town centre, but the local economy too. Daniel strongly stated how excited he is about the regeneration of the Riverside and Smithfield areas. The Representatives explained the reasons why they were carefully selected by highlighting their track record of success in transforming other towns across England and Wales. RivingtonHark aims to submit a complete planning proposal by August 2024 with shovels in the ground by March 2025.

‘The future of Shrewsbury’s town centre is in more than capable hands as I learned yesterday from my meeting with RivingtonHark. I was thrilled to finally meet with the company that boasts an impressive track record of revamping other areas.

‘Shrewsbury is finally getting the funding it deserves and I welcome the Conservative Government’s commitment to Levelling Up our town.

‘Rivington Hark has my wholehearted support!’
