Levelling Up Fund: Bolton

Question for Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

UIN 122630, tabled on 10 February 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, for what reason Bolton's Levelling Up Fund bid for the redevelopment of the Crompton Place was unsuccessful; and what steps they need to take to ensure a greater chance of success in the next round.

Answered on

25 February 2022

The Crompton Place bid was not submitted to the Department by the application deadline of June 18 2021. As set out in the published Levelling Up Fund Technical Note, all bids received after this deadline were not assessed, and could not therefore be considered further.

As a gesture of goodwill, officials conducted a review of the application and provided feedback to Bolton Council on 21 January 2022 drawing out the strengths of the bid and areas for improvement.

Further funding opportunities will be available through the second round of the Levelling Up Fund, which is due to open in Spring 2022. Further details will be made available for this in due course.
