Get up to £5,000 from Mid Devon District Council to help create a new 'must be there' buzz in your town centre.

Mid Devon District Council want to support ideas/projects that will help to revitalise our town centres.

The Vibrant Town Centres Scheme is a funding initiative to support ideas from local businesses, town councils or organisations with projects that will help revive our high streets and help them to flourish for the future.  For 2023, we are looking for applications that support cultural, arts and heritage programmes and events in our town centres.

Who can apply?

  • Event Organisers

Organisers with an idea to bring a new event that will increase interest and footfall within the town.

  • Business Groups

Business groups who are collaborating to make a difference. This might be something physical, or just a great idea which creates a stronger town centre community.

  • Town Councils

With a project that will support the ethos of developing a great place.

How to apply

There is no application form for the Love Your Town Centre Fund, but we expect applicants to be able to make a good case for their project.  Applicants are asked to submit a bid application outlining key points as highlighted in the Vibrant Town Centres Application Guidance

Town Centre groups are encouraged to consider projects that they could put forward for funding.  The projects must be delivered by 31 December 2024.  Funding cannot be used for projects already delivered or initiated unless it is for a separate phase of a wider project.  Applications must be for projects delivered within designated Mid Devon town centres or within Mid Devon town boundaries with a demonstrable direct positive effect on the town centre.

Please note: all successful applicants will be required to complete a Subsidy Declaration Form.
