My Town - What are your ideas for investment in Worcester’s future?
Worcester residents and businesses are being encouraged to have their say on how a multi-million-pound national investment pot should be spent.
The city is in the running to scoop up to £25 million from the Government's £3.6 billion Town Fund.
Plans to spend the money are to be drawn up by a Worcester Town Board established by the City Council – and the city's citizens and employers can have their say on where the investment should go by heading to mytown.communities.gov.uk.
The Board is looking for ideas that will help deliver long-term economic and productivity growth through:
- Urban regeneration, planning and land use: ensuring Worcester is a thriving place for people to live and work
- Skills and enterprise infrastructure: driving private sector investment and ensuring Worcester has the space to support skills and small business development
- Connectivity: developing local transport schemes that complement regional and national networks, as well as supporting the delivery of improved digital connectivity.
Full details on the aims of the Town Fund are in the prospectus published by the Government.
