The clock is ticking for Nuneaton residents, businesses and organisations to submit their views and help shape a bid for millions of pounds worth of funding for the town.

There is just a matter of days left for people to get their initial responses in for the My Town Nuneaton consultation.

The town is one of 100 across the country that has been selected to bid for funding from the Government’s Towns Fund initiative.

There is up to £25 million available for each town to help with projects that will deliver transformation to towns across England.  This is part of the Government’s commitment to ‘level up’ all regions across the country.  

In order to compete for the funding, a bid needs to be created which will include a shortlist of projects and people are asked for their opinions in the first wave of consultation.

Responses have been flooding in, but it is hoped that more people will take part in the campaign.

A Town Deal Board - made up of business representatives, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Councillors, Warwickshire County Councillors and representatives from the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Warwickshire CAVA, the health sector and community – has been created to bring a funding bid together.

Sean Farnell, Chair of the Nuneaton Town Deal Board, said: “We are extremely pleased with how many people are engaging with the My Town Nuneaton consultation and we are getting some great ideas.

“But we want more! This is your chance to shape a bid that would be a massive benefit to Nuneaton and the people that live here.

“Now is the time to get in touch and let us know your ideas for the town.  So please send us your views, you could see your suggestion come to life in the very near future.”

Projects need to be in six key areas - local transport, digital connectivity, urban regeneration, arts, culture and heritage and skills and enterprise – to qualify for the funding.

A plan of action, called a Town Investment Plan, is being drawn up to submit for the Government funding later in the year

Nuneaton residents have until the end of the month to submit their ideas, before a number of shortlisted ideas are put forward for a second round of consultation.

For further information about the campaign and to submit an idea visit www.mytownnuneaton.co.uk
