Getting Building Fund
We have been awarded £15.5m in Getting Building Funding. The Getting Building Fund is a £900 million government fund to deliver jobs, skills and infrastructure across the country.
The fund is supporting the delivery of shovel-ready infrastructure projects, agreed with mayors and Local Enterprise Partnerships to boost economic growth, and fuel local recovery and jobs. Funding for Cheshire and Warrington LEP has been approved for a range of projects across the region, including the Chester Drainage Tunnel.
Chester Drainage Tunnel
Through the Getting Building Fund Cheshire and Warrington LEP provided £5.225m towards the new Chester drainage tunnel, which has now completed.
The tunnel forms a critical part of delivering Phase 1 of the Northgate scheme in the centre of Chester and will also enable other regeneration schemes to be developed.Find out more
