Sindelfingen Park funding bid

Sindelfingen Park funding bid

The October Town Council meeting saw councillors agree to apply for funding to refurbish Sindelfingen Park.

Central Government created the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) to deliver the levelling up agenda, allocating £2.6 billion across the UK up to the end of 2024 - 25 financial year.

The funds are to be allocated locally by a new partnership working between local and national government - in our case North East Derbyshire District Council.

Coun Alex Dale explained: "This is an excellent opportunity to take part in the governments levelling up agenda. The first investment priority of the UKSPF is to strengthen our social fabric and foster a sense of local pride and belonging through investment in activities that enhance physical, cultural and social ties and amenities, such as community infrastructure and local green space."

Should the application be successful, a tendering process will take place to choose a preferred supplier. The project will be part-funded by Dronfield Town Council.

Coun Kevin Tait, Chair of the Parks Committee, said " We have worked hard to put a winning bid together. If successful, this will transform one of our finest green spaces into something really special."

The decision is due towards the end of the year.
