Following the submission of the Final Project List in June 2021, we have up to twelve months to develop full business cases for the Margate Town Deal.   It is then only once these business cases are developed that the Town Deal funds will be received and the five year delivery phase of projects can begin. 

The Margate Town Deal Board has identified seven potential business cases.

The business cases will need to follow the Government’s Green Book Five Case Model to include a Strategic, Economic, Financial, Commercial, and Management case. 

A proportionate approach will be taken to the business cases in relation to the scale of the project.  The Margate Town Deal Board intends to work with specialist consultants and project deliverers where necessary to develop the business cases.

The business case development phase will be supported and informed by a programme of community and stakeholder engagement.  This will include continued work with the Margate Town Deal People’s Panel.
