In December, we paid out £16.4 million in capacity funding to local authorities from the initial 100 towns selected to agree Town Deals. This was to support the development of a Town Deal Board and Town Investment Plan for each of the shortlisted towns in their area.

To date we have also allocated £14.5 million in Future High Streets Fund revenue funding to places to develop detailed business cases for their proposals.
