A new Levelling Up Programme Scrutiny Panel has been created to support the delivery of the Ramsgate Levelling Up fund projects.
Unlike the Margate Town Deal, there is no statutory requirement for a panel to be established for the Ramsgate Levelling Up Programme. It was created, at the request of the Council Leader, to provide an extra level of scrutiny. The panel includes the local MP, the Council Leader, the Chief Executive of Thanet District Council and a representative from Ramsgate Town Council. The role of the panel will be to monitor and review delivery of the projects to ensure that momentum is maintained and positive progress is made and report back to all interested parties.
The Council is also working with key stakeholders in the development of the delivery plans for the projects within the Levelling Up Fund, and will be planning further broader engagement sessions with the community.
