In September 2019, Millom became one of 101 places invited to work with the Government to propose a Town Deal with up to £25million in funds available from the wider £3.6bn Towns Fund.
Working alongside Copeland Borough Council, the Millom Town Deal Board secured an offer of £20.6 million in July 2021 for projects it identified as local priorities.
Four exciting projects have been carried forward and work is now under way to deliver them. Change will not happen overnight. But the Town Deal team is working hard with a variety of stakeholders to make sure every element of the plan is delivered.
Millom will be a revitalised and better-connected town built on inclusive economic growth, maximising our natural landscape and heritage.
We will be recognised as a welcoming peninsular town, with thriving independent businesses and a distinctive culture, arts and tourism offer.
Locals and visitors will enjoy active, healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
