A council said that they are currently surveying the area of a town as part of a lucrative project to revitalise it.

The Revitalised Town project, which forms part of the £22 million Cleator Moor Town Deal, aims to create a community hub centred on the town's library, the Copeland Council buildings and the space around them.

Copeland Borough Council notified members of the public on social media that surveyors are in Cleator Moor this week to measure and examine the interior and exterior of these spaces.

A spokesperson for Copeland Borough Council said the community hub will be a "one stop shop for residents and visitors, using both the Library and Copeland Council buildings" and that the space around the buildings will be "updated" to become an "attractive environment for people to meet, spend time in and hold events".

Cleator Moor was awarded the multi-million pound deal in June this year.

At the time it was said that the financial injection, which was part of the Government’s Towns Fund, would go towards creating new jobs, improving transport links, and revamping cultural and tourist attractions.

It was the Cleator Moor Town Deal board, with the support of Copeland Council, that made the application for a share of the £600 million fund that was available.
