A SUMMARY of plans which could lead to Bridgwater receiving nearly £200m of grants and investment has been released by Sedgemoor District Council.
The Bridgwater Town Investment Plan Summary document provides ‘stakeholders’ and the wider public with a condensed version of the overarching plan.
A council spokesperson said: “The document sets out the vision for Bridgwater, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for the town, the strategic aims and objectives, the projects proposed to government, the planned outputs, outcomes and impacts and finally the approach to delivering the plan successfully.
“The wider plan seeks to secure £25 million of Government funding for Bridgwater and if successful will unlock over £160 million of public and private investment into the town that will stimulate billions more in local economic and community benefits.
“It is expected that feedback will be received from Government by the end of March providing an ‘in-principle’ agreement on the allocated funding.
“The next steps will be the production of detailed design proposals alongside further community engagement to ensure the plan achieves its aims and objectives.”
