Public asked where they would like £2.7 million fund spent in South Holland
Residents and businesses are being asked where they would like to see a £2.7 million fund invested in South Holland.
The cash is our area's share of the Government's UK Shared Prosperity Fund - and part of £9.3 million given to the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership (SELCP).
The Fund is 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.
Council leader Gary Porter has previously said he hopes this cash will be the start of increased investment here.
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 from people about what they want and what will work best locally.
The website can be seen at www.selcp-haveyoursay.co.uk.
People can get involved by:
- Responding to the online survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/UKSPF
