UK Shared Prosperity Fund
As part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, we've been allocated £1 million to be spent throughout the district.
Between now and 2025 the money will be used to help pay for projects that support the fund’s three priorities:
- Community and Place
- Supporting Local Business
- and People and Skills.
Funding will go towards projects that focus on the council's priorities, including:
- Inspiring pride in place,
- Helping the district to become greener faster
- Supporting a vibrant local economy
Initiatives that promote health, well-being and opportunity for disadvantaged communities will be a key focus of the funding.
The funding is spread over three years, with a small percentage allocated in the first year (2022-23) and the majority of the funding (over 80%) allocated to year three (2024-25).
The council has already undertaken consultation with a range of partners and stakeholders to start determining which projects and activities to fund, and this will continue over the coming months.
