Cannock Town Centre Levelling Up Fund bid application form
During Autumn 2021 we were delighted to receive news from the Government that the Council’s Levelling Up Fund bid had been successful. As a result, Cannock Chase Council was allocated £20m to regenerate Cannock Town Centre, something that the Council and its councillors have been keen to do for a while.
There has been widespread recognition that Cannock Town Centre requires major improvement. The former multi-storey car park has become an eyesore and we are not making the most of some of the town centre assets including the Prince of Wales Theatre.
The Council is now able to publish a redacted copy of the bid application form submitted to the Government.
The application form details the funding basis of our plans and gives some further detail around the proposed development.
Please note that it is necessary to redact information contained in our application form. This is because some of the content is commercially sensitive and revealing it may harm our ability to negotiate with third parties who are fundamental to the Council’s vision for the town centre to be realised.
A significant sum of public money is being invested by both the Government and the Council. It is important that public money is invested wisely to achieve value for money for taxpayers. Revealing redacted detailed information at this stage might affect delivering the proposals.
The redactions made are in respect of the “commercial interests exemption” included within the Freedom of Information Act.
- There is still time to give your feedback on the Council's vision for the town centre via our town centre virtual exhibition website. Please go to vpc.tetratecheurope.com/engage/cannockchase. The closing date for feedback is 31 December 2021.
