Accelerated funding for Kidsgrove Town Deal projects

Package 1: Kidsgrove Sports Village

The Kidsgrove Sports Village concept aims to provide high quality leisure facilities and health and wellbeing services across Kidsgrove.

The Town Fund advance payment funded the strip out and early works at the leisure centre. This has helped to speed up the redevelopment of a derelict but important public asset.

Funding was also used to improve the King’s School sports pitches. The Astroturf pitch has been condemned, and the school’s grass pitches suffer from poor drainage.

The Town Fund advance payment addressed the funding gap. This guaranteed the delivery of leisure facilities for both the school and the community of Kidsgrove.
