Has there been a new round of Town Fund allocations?
My area - Ashfield - has just been announced as getting £62m. Sounds reasonably significant.
Ashfield Independens thanking Lee Anderson, which is ... radical.
"Councils had been asked to put bids together for £25million for both Kirkby and Sutton. Ashfield District Council upped the ante an ambitious bid for £62million. A bid that was ultimately successful.
Major projects focussed on skills and business development, new and improved leisure, sports and health facilities and town centre regeneration projects are some of the ways that Ashfield District Council plan to change Sutton-in-Ashfield and Kirkby-in-Ashfield for the better.
Councillor Matthew Relf, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Place, Planning and Regeneration and Ashfield Independent councillor for Sutton Junction and Harlow Wood said, “This is great news not just for Kirkby and Sutton but also for the whole of Ashfield and the wider area."
