About the Lincoln Town Deal Board

Call for applications to the Town Deal Programme

The accountable body has now received all the business cases for twelve projects within the approved Lincoln Town Deal programme.  One of the original projects has been withdrawn resulting in a current shortfall in the Programme of both expenditure (£1M) and delivery outputs.  A call is therefore being made for a suitable replacement project(s).

If you have a well-developed project that meets the criteria and tight deadlines below, please complete a Lincoln Town Deal Fund - proforma and return to michelle.smith@lincoln.gov.uk by 28th of January 2022.
