In 2021, Stevenage was awarded £37.5million from the UK government’s Town’s Fund to help revitalise the town.  This funding has been allocated to developing a number of key aspirations for Stevenage.

The Stevenage Development Board was set up in March 2020 to formulate a bid for this initiative. Stevenage were one of 101 towns in England invited to bid and were successfully awarded £37.5m in March 2021 following the submission of the Stevenage Town Investment Plan, set out and ratified by the Stevenage Development Board.

Thanks to the effort of all of those involved, Stevenage secured the second joint highest bid in the country, working in collaboration on a Town Investment Plan with a clear vision, strategy and delivery proposals, that supports local residents and businesses

The Stevenage Development Board is chaired by businessperson Adrian Hawkins OBE, the Independent Chair. The Board brings together voluntary key stakeholders from public sector organisations, private businesses, not-for-profit organisations and Heritage organisations, to ensure a diverse range of views are represented.
