The Scarborough Fair
The Town Deals programme aims to regenerate towns and deliver long-term economic growth through investments in urban regeneration, digital and physical connectivity, skills, heritage and enterprise infrastructure.
On March 3, 2021, the Government announced that Scarborough had been successful in securing £20.2 million of Town Deal funding, and Whitby would receive £17.1 million.
The eight Scarborough projects being funded from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities programme are designed to deliver better outcomes for residents and businesses by making the town more vibrant while building on the cultural heritage for which both are famous.
The Scarborough Fair project is funded in part by £1.2 million from the Government’s Towns Fund programme, which is being used to help to organise 15 festivals over three years.
