Town Deal

 

In November 2019, the Ministry of Homes, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) announced that Scarborough and Whitby had been identified as two of 101 towns in England that they wish to work with to develop Town Investment Plans and bid for a share of the Government’s £3.6bn Towns Fund.

A Town Deal Board for each town, made up of representatives from different local organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors, has been set up to consider proposals, develop Town Investment Plans and ensure both Whitby and Scarborough submit a bid to the Government’s Towns Fund by Autumn 2020.

Successful bids could bring in up to £25m for each town to help deliver long term economic growth and make a significant contribution towards Building a Better Borough, the Council’s recently announced programme to deliver better outcomes for communities throughout the Borough of Scarborough.

The partnerships will see Scarborough Borough Council collaborate closely with residents and businesses in Whitby and Scarborough about what they want to see included in the bid for their town.

People can feed in their ideas via the Government’s ‘My Town’ campaign, which will capture information on behalf of the different towns developing bids and forward to the relevant town area for inclusion. It’s an easy way for residents and businesses to submit their ideas for what they think would make a successful town bid.

Suggestions can be made via the #mytown website at mytown.communities.gov.uk  

More information about the scheme can be found in the Town Fund Prospectus.
