St Helens Town Deal Board
The Town Deal Board is the vehicle through which the vision and strategy for the town is defined. The board includes Members of Parliament, members of the local community, businesses, and other partners committed to improving St Helens Borough.
Board membership, and the election of the Co-chairs, was agreed at the Town Deal Board meeting on 23 January 2020.
Its key tasks are to:
- Hold regular Town Deal Board meetings and use it as the vehicle through which the vision and strategy for the Town Investment Plan is defined.
- Develop an evidence-based Town Investment Plan for approval by the government.
- Engage with the community, stakeholders, and partners to help define the vision and strategy for the investment plan, setting out what the challenges are for the town.
- Undertake a project prioritisation and assessment process for all projects and ideas, identifying projects which will address the challenges discovered through the stakeholder engagement process.
