In November 2019, Glastonbury was officially announced as one of the 100 towns earmarked to benefit from the Governments £3.6bn Towns Fund with the opportunity to secure up to £25 million of investment for the town.
Government set up the Towns Fund to address growth constraints and to deliver long term economic and productivity growth through:
- Urban regeneration, planning and land use,
- Skills and enterprise infrastructure,
The Towns Fund provides Glastonbury with an opportunity to agree a Town Deal with Government (Cities and Local Government Unit (CLGU) securing significant investment in growth that will ultimately benefit businesses, communities and individuals across the town.
The Glastonbury Town Deal Board will be the body that shapes the vision for the town as well as defining the strategy and steps that need to be taken to achieve that vision.
The public are invited to suggest projects that could be considered as part of the Town Deal Fund. If you have any ideas, or wish to comment on existing suggestions, please visit the My Town page to do so.
