Stronger Towns Board

In establishing the Stronger Towns programme, Government included a requirement to establish a local Board as the vehicle through which the vision and strategy for the town is defined.

The Board has been set the task of producing a Town Investment Plan for submission to Government to secure money from the Towns Fund. The role of the Board is to:

  • Develop and agree an evidenced based Town Investment Plan
  • Develop a clear programme of interventions
  • Coordinate resources and influence wider stakeholders

The Board are a group of stakeholders who have volunteered to support the development of the Town Investment Plan, made up of representatives from public bodies, industry experts, business leaders and community leaders in Bishop Auckland.
