Accrington Town Centre Investment Plan (TCIP)

The Town Centre Investment Plan (TCIP) announced for Accrington Town Centre – which sets out potential possible investments of around £70m – is predicted to generate up to £9.6million for the local economy each year, entice up to 820,000 visitors annually and support hundreds of new jobs.

The TCIP, which was presented in a Full Council meeting on 13 January 2022, will guide decision making and be used as a springboard to secure future funding and investment. The document sets out an evidence base of Accrington’s challenges and opportunities. It details a variety of projects and initiatives that will improve environmental quality in the town, encouraging sustainable growth for the local economy over the next 10-15 years, if implemented.
