A £2.5million highways improvement scheme is set for Whitehaven.
The money will fund redevelopment plans at Whitehaven North Shore, including junction and pedestrian and improvements to the Bransty area.
The North Shore development includes offices, a hotel, leisure, residential and supporting car parking infrastructure, totalling £300million.
£1.67m has been allocated from the government’s National Productivity Investment Fund - a £23bn source of central government investment for areas that are key to boosting productivity, including transport, digital communications, research and development, and housing.
The outstanding £0.8m of funding comes from Britain’s Energy Coast.
