Local authorities of all tiers, including town councils, are vital to the success of the Towns Fund and play a key role in delivery. This includes being members of Town Deal Boards, shaping Town Investment Plans and delivering projects to make a real and tangible difference to local people.

The nature of the role of local authorities in delivering the Towns Fund will also be subject of the process and impact evaluations which will run throughout the length of the Towns Fund programme.
