  1. urban regeneration, planning and land use,

  3. connectivity

How will we get Stapleford a Towns Deal?

The Council, as the governing authority, convened the Executive Town Deal Board in January 2020. This Board to date has been working towards the creation and submission of Stapleford’s Town Investment Plan (TIP). This plan sets out the vision, strategy and outline projects for Stapleford. 

To offer wider discussion with interested parties, a Stakeholder Group was also put in place during the development of the TIP. The role of this group was to support the production of the TIP; feeding views, wants and needs for Stapleford in to the Executive board.

Alongside this we have consulted with local residents, businesses and other interested organisations as to their own ideas and the ideas generated by the two boards. This feedback has been processed and is reflected in the final TIP document. This was submitted to Government on the 28th January 2021. 

After a long period of deliberation, Government announced on Tuesday 8th June 2021 that Stapleford is set to receive up to £21.1m  of grant funding to implement the projects outlined in Stapleford's Town Investment Plan.

The Town Deal area

On the announcement of the Towns Fund, the Government used the 'Stapleford BUASD' boundary provided by the Office of National Statistics, to initially define Stapleford. This is the geographic area to be represented by the Stapleford Town Deal board, where investments detailed in the TIP will occur.
