Eccles Town Team

Eccles Town Team is a group of local people and organizations who are working to improve Eccles Town Centre as a place to visit, shop and enjoy.

In 2012 Eccles applied to take part in the Portas Pilot scheme which is a government initiative designed to support the regeneration of the traditional high street. As part of the application process the town team produced a video which sets out their vision for Eccles Town Centre.

Funding
Although unsuccessful in the bid, the town team signed up to become a Town Team Partner which secured £10,000 and created an opportunity to start to develop ideas for Eccles. Salford City Council have offered further support in the shape of £50,000 of High Street Innovation funding.

The Town Team is now working hard to revitalizing Eccles Town Centre, with the aims of increasing the numbers of people using the town centre through regular events, promoting enterprise and bringing empty units back into use.
