Places beyond pots: don’t just chase the cash!



At a time of a multiplicity of funding pots including Towns Fund, Future High Streets Fund, Getting Building Fund and more, it’s still important to keep the strategic focus on being place led to avoid white elephants.

Whilst it’s great to have access to government funding, spending it unwisely can lose community confidence and a wrong move in terms of the built environment can be there for 50 years.

It’s essential to understand what’s going to be important for the future of your place needn’t take months and months of time or cost a huge amount of money.
