THE borough's regeneration leader is calling for innovative ideas on how to spend £75,000 at the future Bracknell market.
Bracknell Forest Council was awarded £100,000 in March 2012 as part of the Government's High Street Innovation Fund - an initiative to help revitalise and revive town centres.
Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for regeneration, told The News that the grant has now been earmarked for two areas, with the majority being spent on the market in its new form.
The second portion of the grant, around £25,000, will be spent on supporting those businesses impacted by the regeneration - an announcement which comes as the last steps of the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) process were completed on Monday.
Remaining companies in Broadway and Crossway (northern sector) will have to leave by June 4, ahead of demolition in the summer.
