Lincoln Investment Plan
Lincoln Town Deal Board has submitted plans to government to bid for nearly £25m of funding over the next five years to deliver long-term economic growth in the city.
Lincoln was one of 101 towns and cities selected by government to work towards a Town Deal and, in January 2020, a multi-agency board was established to oversee the creation of the Town Investment Plan which includes a vision and 5-year project programme to support the growth and development of the city.
The Town Investment Plan includes the priorities of digitalisation, skills to support inclusive growth, sustainable transport and urban regeneration, tested in consultation with the citizens’ panel earlier in the year. The plan was further developed by working closely with a range of stakeholders and through the assessment of economic evidence. Carbon reduction, inclusive growth needs and the recovery from Covid-19 have also been considered.
The plan requests £24.75m of investment across 15 projects from the Town Investment Fund and if approved, will level direct co-funding support of £20.5m to drive growth and underpin wider, private sector investment.
