Kidsgrove Town Deal projects

Next steps

The Board submitted the project confirmation forms (letting the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) know which projects they were taking forward) on 17 May 2021.

They also submitted a draft monitoring and evaluation plan. The Board (together with the borough council) now has up to 12 months to develop and submit detailed business cases for each project.

Initial work has started on preparation of the business cases for Kidsgrove Station and Chatterley Valley West. The shared service hub and the canal enhancement project will follow.

MHCLG received and approved the business case for the sports centre in March 2021. The rest of the work is now underway, with an anticipated completion of Spring 2022.
