Levelling Up Fund Round 2: Successful project bids

As part of round 2, Denbighshire County Council was successful in their application for the Clwyd West Constituency. The Levelling Up Funding allocated to Denbighshire amounts to £10.95m and will benefit Ruthin and rural communities.

We are now actively working to move the projects forward by:

  • Developing a Programme Management Framework for the Clwyd West funding to ensure that Denbighshire County Council is able to comply with the grant requirements, UK Government's Monitoring & Assurance Conditions, and audit requirements.
  • Contacting the Third-Party projects to explain the next steps and support them to finalise their business cases and project documentation prior to issuing Third Party Funding Agreements.
  • Project team requirements have already been identified to progress the Denbighshire County Council projects. The Council will now mobilise these teams and will shortly start to recruit the additional resources necessary to support the delivery of the projects.
  • Project teams will then start to develop project plans and over the next couple of months will be in contact with key stakeholders to discuss the projects in more depth.
