Denny town centre regeneration
Phase 1 of Denny town centre's new £7.8m development of shop units, a community library and new town square is complete transforming the town centre into a modern fit for purpose space. Delivered following extensive community consultation, the new town centre includes:
- A new two storey building with ground floor units accessed from Stirling Street
- A new improved and increased car park accessed from Davies Row
- Access to the first floor units and the library from the car park side of the building (reflecting the difference in levels between the car park and Stirling Street)
- A new bright and welcoming Denny Library with community space
- Community designed Town Square featuring 4 individual public art commissions reflecting Denny's rich heritage
- Town centre WiFi providing new opportunities for business, residents and visitors.
