Levelling Up Fund Round 2

The second round of the Levelling Up Fund was announced on 23 March 2022. Denbighshire County Council submitted two separate bids into the second round relating to the constituencies of Clwyd West and the Vale of Clwyd. Through an all-inclusive process, the projects included within the bids were contributed by Members, MPs, Town Councils and Officers across Denbighshire. Eligible projects were deliverable, impactful and fulfilled the LUF criteria. Further engagement with the Council’s Member Area Groups and Senior Leadership led to the finalised bid projects, which were then approved by Cabinet.

On Thursday 19 January, 2023, Denbighshire County Council received confirmation that the application for the Clwyd West constituency had been successful under round 2 of the UK Government Levelling Up Fund. The Levelling Up funding allocated to Denbighshire amounts to £10.95m and will benefit Ruthin and rural communities. Denbighshire County Council was disappointed that the Vale of Clwyd bid was unsuccessful and will now be working with UK Government officials and the MP to gain feedback from the bid assessment process. A review of future funding options will then be undertaken to determine how these important projects can be delivered.
