In September 2019, the Government announced it had selected Rowley Regis, Smethwick and West Bromwich to submit a Towns Fund application for up to £25 million per town.
The towns able to submit a bid and the associated criteria were selected by central Government. Sandwell Council continues to identify and seize investment and regeneration opportunities for all six towns.
Sandwell Council recently carried out a Phase one survey (in August 2020) looking at priorities in your local town. The results helped inform project ideas that should be considered for submission to the government for the Towns Deal funding.
These ideas then went through rigorous analysis to see if they meet both the Town Deal criteria outlined by Government, and Sandwell’s aspirations as set out in the Vision 2030.
Those project ideas which met the rigorous criteria have now been compiled into a shortlist.
They now need your views on these shortlisted project ideas as part of this Phase Two by completing a short survey by clicking here.
The phase two survey is now live until 30th September 2020.
The three of the main priorities for the Programme are:
- Urban Regeneration
- Skills and Enterprise Infrastructure
- Connectivity (Transport adn Digital)
