Thanet has the opportunity to bid into the Government’s Levelling Up Fund as it is a Priority One area and with two parliamentary constituencies is able to submit two bids.
This submission of a bid to the Levelling Up Fund for Margate is strongly aligned to the Margate Town Deal, and builds on the proposal for education, skills and employment pathway opportunities in the Margate Town Investment Plan.
This funding will support the delivery of a state of the art digital skills and training provision in the town centre which will undoubtedly support the whole district's economic recovery and levelling up of its communities, both in terms of training opportunities and pathways, as well as increasing footfall in the high street.
