Vision of Projects and Finance Committee
The vision of the Projects and Finance Committee is to support and ensure the delivery of projects that will benefit Congleton as a place to work, live and visit and to improve the well-being and quality of life of its residents. Such projects, whether promoted by the Congleton Partnership, The Town Council and others, will be those that aim to improve the economic well-being and the fabric of the town including its buildings, infra-structure and its way of life through embracing sustainable living and cultural activities such as festivals and events that enhance the quality of life of its residents and help increase ‘footfall’ in the town centre.
The remit of the Projects and Finance Committee is to provide an overview of the agreed projects to ensure a coordinated approach to the delivery of the vision; to provide help as necessary in identifying, prioritising, facilitating implementation and financial management of said projects. To encourage projects promoted by others that meet the objectives of the overall vision.
To work with Congleton Town Council to seek funding and start to implement the Public Realm Strategy.
