Levelling Up projects
Three major regeneration projects in Leicester have been awarded money from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund.
You can see details of each project in the funding applications published below. We are working on accessible pdf versions of the applications.
Leicester Railway Station
Leicester City Council successfully bid for £17.6million from the Levelling Up Fund towards a £22million scheme to remodel the station’s entrance and create a more attractive gateway to the city centre.
Over £19million of funding will enable two related projects in and around Pioneer Park and Exploration Drive, off Abbey Lane. The area is already home to the innovative Dock workspaces for high-tech industries, and the first project would see two more Dock-style buildings as well as nine high-quality manufacturing spaces.
We have been allocated £8.6million to redevelop Pilot House on King Street into a home for creative businesses – that is 75% of the total budget for the scheme.Funding application - Pilot House
