Newcastle-under-Lyme Town Deal member profiles
One condition of the town deal was that Kidsgrove set up a Town Deal Board to develop and agree a town investment plan (TIP).
The plan had to set out a clear understanding of the area, focusing on its assets, opportunities and challenges. All members volunteered to join the board because they know the area well and want to see it prosper.
It comprises representatives from the public, private, voluntary, education and community sectors.
The board members nominated the Chair and Vice-chair and all members have approved the terms of reference for the board.
Now that the TIP has been submitted, the board will continue to work on the next phase of the Town Deal, the development of the business cases. A team of officers from the borough and county councils supports the board.
