Town Investment Plan
The Glastonbury Town Deal is set to bring £23.6m investment into the town, funded by the government to deliver the projects outlined in the Town Investment Plan (TIP). The TIP was developed by the Town Deal Board through engagement with key partners, businesses, community groups and Mendip District Council as the lead authority.
The aim of the Town Deal is to deliver a necessary ‘levelling up’ opportunity for Glastonbury, bringing existing assets back into community use and working with local communities to deliver the spaces and resources that they want and need. A summary of each of the projects, as outlined in the TIP, can be found below by clicking on the individual images.
The project teams, Town Deal Board and support team are currently working through the detailed Business Cases required by the government. This process must be carefully followed and viable business cases submitted in order to secure the funding.
Once the Business Case process has been completed and all the relevant documentation submitted, we will be able to provide more information about the plans for the individual projects.
In August 2020, the Glastonbury Town Deal Board submitted proposals to make use of £500k of ‘accelerator funding’ that was made available to address issues arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. This funding was available to Glastonbury because it is one of the 101 towns earmarked to benefit from the government’s £3.6bn Towns Fund.
Five projects were agreed, as outlined below. Click on the images to find out more about what these entailed and the benefits they are already bringing for the local community.
