The Rural England Prosperity Fund is an addendum to the UKSPF providing funding between 2023/24 and 2024/25. The report sets out the allocation to Tunbridge Wells, identifying the focus on the rural area and proposed interventions. A delivery mechanism across West Kent building on the previously successful LEADER programme is proposed. The timescale of submission to Government by 30 November 2022 for approval is outlined.
REASON FOR DECISION: To approve a West Kent wide REPF approach would enable the Council to submit the REPF in time for Central Government to consider and approve within the prescribed timescale, that would enable the Borough to benefit from funding and allow the Council to invest in the Borough over the next two years.
