Towns are in the process of completing their business cases and supplying the department with Summary Documents which, once approved, will allow DLUHC to release funding for projects.

The Town Deal programme is scheduled to run until financial year 25/26 with projects set to be delivered by that deadline. Some projects will also be delivered before then according to the timelines established by the towns.

It is expected that all funding provided from the Levelling Up Fund will be spent by 31 March 2024, and, exceptionally, into 2024-25 for larger schemes.
