To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, when the Levelling Up fund will open to applications for the next round of funding.
On Wednesday 27 October, the Chancellor announced the outcome of the first round of the Levelling Up Fund, which will see £1.7 billion invested in 105 local infrastructure projects across the UK. Citizens across the UK can expect to see projects getting underway from early 2022.
Those applicants that were unsuccessful in the first round have been contacted. Unsuccessful applicants, who passed the gateway assessment stage, have been offered a feedback session to discuss their application, expected to take place over the next few weeks.
The second round of bidding for the Levelling Up Fund will be opened in spring 2022 and more information on this will be set out in due course.
