To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, to provide a breakdown of unsuccessful bids to the Levelling Up Fund including (a) applicant name, (b) bid name, (c) bid value, (d) a summary of the bid, (e) which phases were applied for and (e) a summary of the reasons for rejection.
Details of the assessment and decision-making process for round 2 of the Levelling Up Fund are available in the published explanatory note. A detailed breakdown of funding requested and awarded in round 2 can be found in the published geographic and thematic analysis. The department does not request nor record the costs incurred by applicants to the Fund. As set out in the Written Ministerial Statement of 19 January, I am pleased to say there will be a third round of the Fund and we will outline more information on this in due course.
Unsuccessful applicants to this second round will be provided written feedback to support future applications into levelling up funds.
