North Warwickshire Borough Council successful in bidding for further Government funding

Published on Tuesday, 13th December 2022

The Government has announced this week that North Warwickshire Borough Council has been successful in applying for £1.965million from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

The £1.965million allocated will be used to support a range of projects including a grants scheme to allow voluntary organisations and community groups to improve their neighbourhoods and community facilities; a programme of investment in green spaces and play facilities; a comprehensive programme of business support to assist businesses to be more productive, reduce their carbon footprint and create new jobs; and a programme of support to assist people not in employment to help the move closer to employment, education and training.

The Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) replaces European Union funding streams previously delivered on a county-wide basis.

Leader of the Council, Cllr David Wright said: “It’s fantastic news to see almost £2million of funding is being invested in our borough and is a testament of our ongoing drive to bring much-needed investment into North Warwickshire. We will use this funding as effectively as possible with the focus on local business growth and entrepreneurship and boosting our communities and supporting the skills of our residents and businesses.”

Full details will be available on the council website shortly.
