© 2020 - St Ives Town Deal
St Ives has a very short period to develop a vision and Town Investment Plan to potentially access up to £25m for what are called ‘interventions’. The object being to deliver ‘’economic productivity through urban regeneration, planning and land use, skills and enterprise infrastructure and connectivity’’.
If successful, St Ives will enter into a Town Deal with the government, with the overall aim of levelling up our economy, bringing opportunities for everyone who lives and works here, providing quality employment and real aspiration for all. This will be wrapped in a circular and green economy approach – meeting the needs of all within safe environmental limits – and making St Ives ready for the challenges of the future. We need to embrace change for the town and think differently in order to put together a successful bid!
We would particularly like to hear your ideas about how the Towns Fund can help regenerate the following areas of our economy – food production and fisheries, small businesses and finance, renewable energy and clean transport, genuinely affordable housing, digital economy and online connectivity, culture and heritage, sports provision and how we can bring greater benefits from tourism to more of the local population. We want to hear from everyone – Families, young people, the elderly, residents and businesses.
