We Made That and PRD are excited to announce that The Margate Town Investment Plan has been awarded £22.2m of Town Deal funding from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. The Margate Town Investment Plan provides a long term plan to transform Margate and act as a catalyst for future investment.
The bid was developed with PRD, alongside Thanet District Council, the Town Team, People’s Panel, stakeholders, local businesses and the community. Pleydell Smithyman ran an extensive engagement process that also informed the plan.
Four project interventions have been outlined to address the challenges facing the town, helping to provide long-lasting benefits for local people and create a nationally significant visitor offer to support COVID-19 recovery. The four interventions outlined include Scaling Margate’s Creative Production and Skills, Coastal Wellbeing, Public Realm and Connections and Supporting and Diversifying Heritage Assets.
