Love your Town Centre Capital Investment Fund
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.
Love Your Town Centre 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.
What is it?
Whether it's tidying up a public space, bringing back an empty unit/first floor space into practical use or an event to attract more visitors; we want to hear from you.
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.
When can you apply?
The Love your Town Centre Fund opens for applications on Thursday 1 October and closes at 12noon on Thursday 15 October 2020. Applications will go to a Funding Panel for assessment with funding decisions announced by 13 November.
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 LYTC Fund Application Process.
Town Centre groups are encouraged to consider projects that they could put forward for funding. The projects must be delivered within 12 months of the funding decision. 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.
