Levelling Up Fund


The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities' Levelling Up announced Round 2 of the £4.8 billion Levelling Up Fund in April 2022. This fund aims to supporting investment in infrastructure and schemes that improve everyday life across the UK, including regenerating town centres and high streets, upgrading local transport options, and investing in cultural, heritage and leisure assets.

The outcome of round 2 of this competitive capital grant programme was announced on 17 January 2023.

We submitted two applications in line with guidance, and successfully secured funding for the Transforming Ellesmere Port Town Centre. Unfortunately, the transport infrastructure project was not successful. Details of both proposals can be found below.

The Government have announced that a third call for applications for Levelling Up funding (LUF) will be made, although no timetable has been set at this time. The Council will need to consider the criteria and any guidance issued in relation to a third LUF application process prior to making a decision on which (if any) applications may be submitted for round 3.
