South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership invites local people to have their say on £9.3 million UK Shared Prosperity Fund investments
The South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership (SELCP) is to receive £9.3 million over the next 3 years from the Government's UK Shared Prosperity Fund - and it is inviting the views of local residents and businesses on how they think it should be invested.
The Fund is a key part of the Government's 'Levelling Up' agenda, providing money for local councils to invest in three priority areas: local communities and places; support for local businesses; and people and skills.
Boston Borough Council will receive £2.2m, East Lindsey District Council has been awarded £4.4m and South Holland District Council will receive £2.7m.
The work is being coordinated by SELCP, but each Council is looking separately at where the greatest local needs lie. To achieve this, they are launching a consultation to hear directly from local people about what local communities want and what will work best locally.
Further information can be found on the dedicated website:
