The Kidsgrove Town Deal
The Town Deal for Kidsgrove is an exciting and unique opportunity to bid for investment to help future economic growth. The Town Deal Board submitted the Kidsgrove town investment plan (TIP) (External link to a PDF document) on 30 October 2020.
The Board, the Borough Council and our consultants, AECOM, worked hard to put together a TIP that will bring real and lasting economic benefits to Kidsgrove and the surrounding area.
The Kidsgrove Town Deal Board agreed the Town Deal boundary (PDF, 214 KB, available to download and print). MHCLG approved it in January 2020.
On 3 March 2021, the Kidsgrove Town Deal Board was delighted to receive an offer of £16.9 million to deliver the projects contained in the TIP.
The Board has confirmed to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)* that they accept the offer and the heads of terms. This is a document which sets out the terms of the grant offer, including any conditions that need to be met.
The Board then completed a project summary form for each project in the TIP. This let MHCLG know which projects the Board wanted to take forward and if there were any changes to the description in the TIP.
The Board agreed that the sports centre would be a fast track project. This meant that we were able to submit all the paperwork early so that the funding could be released and work could begin straight away.
The Board submitted the other project confirmation forms on 17 May 2021 and we now have until 31 March 2022 to provide a detailed business case for each project.
* MHCLG is now called the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DHLUC).
