Newcastle-under-Lyme Town Deal projects

Following a call for projects, local people and organisations sent in over 25 project ideas.

 


 

Prioritisation

AECOM devised a prioritisation method which the Board approved. This is available to download and print out.

All projects were scored against several factors such as cost, fit with local strategies, how easy they would be to deliver and whether they met the requirements of the MHCLG guidance. After scoring all the projects, three main objectives stood out for Newcastle.

Project development groups worked up the ideas in more detail ready for inclusion in the final town investment plan (TIP). The Board submitted the TIP to MHCLG in January 2021.

There is a useful summary of the Newcastle Town Deal in the video below submitted along with the TIP.

 

 


 

Business cases

The next phase of the Town Deal process requires the development of full business cases for each agreed project, in line with HM Treasury's green book.

Sub-groups have been set up for each of projects in the TIP to help produce these green book compliant business cases. These sub-groups comprise of Board members and representatives from other organisations with relevant skills.
