Denny Town Centre's new £7.8m development of 10 shop units, a community library and improved car park is now open with a number of new and existing businesses trading in their new bespoke units.

This development includes:

•A new upgraded car park accessed from Davies Row, with an initial 63 parking spaces (remaining 35 spaces to be completed during 2017)

•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)

The completion of phase 1 will conclude in Autumn 2017 with the completion of the new town square in the town centre.  This will include the introduction of exciting new public art features to both the town square and the staircase from Stirling Street to the car park.  The 5 public art ideas included in the master plan for the town are as follows:

•A Sculptural Treasure Trail – a sculpture 'treasure' trail which highlights and tells the story of Denny

•Railing – the creation of bespoke artistic railings that reflect the local heritage and people of the area

•The Lazy Corner – This area was historically a social point where locals gathered at the corner for a chat

•The Staircase – located at the north end of the site, the artist will work directly with the elevation of the stairs to host artistic elements that reflect local heritage aspects

•The Picture House (Way Finding) – referencing local cinema and picture houses that existed in Denny

A range of events such as the Christmas lights switch on ensure the town centre remains a hive of activity. For more information about the regeneration of Denny click here
