Town Investment Plan
On 6 September 2019 the government invited 100 places to develop proposals for a Town Deal, as part of the £3.6 billion Towns Fund.
Reflecting our heritage as the UK’s first New Town, our vision is to reinvigorate Stevenage so that it represents the aspirations of its people and makes provision for the opportunities they seek.
We will create an exemplar 21st century New Town that maximises the benefits of our local economy whilst providing a combined retail, leisure, cultural and residential offer that will meet the needs of our population and attract visitors and investment well into the future.
This vision, combined with feedback we’ve gained from hundreds of Stevenage residents, has enabled us to identify our core values and themes that we are basing our proposals around.
We’re delighted to announce that on 3 March 2021 we were awarded £37.5m by the Government. You can read more about the funding here
