Bideford Regeneration Strategy

Progress through Partnership

The Bideford Regeneration Board was established in 2022 as a unique public-private partnership, acting as a collaborative, community-focused and independent advisory body. 

Through our activities, we facilitate and encourage a strategic, coordinated and joined-up approach towards improvement and regeneration in Bideford with an aim to:  

  • Pull together key bodies from across the town and strengthen a shared vision for the town's future. 
  • Ensure that wider voices are heard and can feed into the process and vision in order to ensure a brighter future for the community and economy.
