Town deal governance - Kidsgrove

What is the Town Deal Board?

The Towns Fund has issued strict guidelines for managing Town Deals. Town Deal boards are not legal entities. However, setting up a Town Deal board, bringing together local people and organisations to develop transformational projects for their area, was an essential part of the Town Deal award.

The board's responsibilities include developing the town investment plan (TIP) and business cases and overseeing delivery of the projects. The board comprises representatives from the public, private, voluntary, education and community sectors.

The role of the board is to advise us on the needs of their area and for monitoring progress with the projects that make up the town investment plan.
