Glastonbury Town Deal

The Glastonbury Town Deal is set to bring £23.6 million investment into the town, representing a once-in-a-generation opportunity and delivering the projects outlined in the Town Investment Plan.

With regeneration and sustainability at the heart of the projects, the overall aim is to preserve Glastonbury’s heritage and restore its existing assets in order to revitalise and enrich the town.

The Town Investment Plan was developed by the Town Deal Board through engagement with key partners, businesses, community groups and Mendip District Council as the lead authority. The Town Deal projects are being coordinated and delivered by the members of the Glastonbury community.

Glastonbury is one of 101 towns in the UK to receive investment as part of the Government’s Town Deal Fund scheme. The funding is designed to ‘level up’ all parts of the country by regenerating town centres to boost businesses, improve infrastructure, encourage enterprise and bring communities together.
