AMION appointed to evaluate Forest of Dean Levelling Up Fund scheme

AMION have been appointed to carry out an evaluation of the Forest of Dean District Council’s Levelling Up Fund scheme. We will be carrying out a baseline review this year with interim and final evaluations following in the next two years. AMION are leading a team which also includes Focus Consultants and Spirul.

In 2021 the Council secured £20 million of Levelling Up Fund support to improve leisure and community facilities, repurpose vacant buildings and grow the local economy across the area. The scheme focuses on three projects: a new Enterprise Learning Centre at Hartpury University, a new leisure centre and community hub at Five Acres and the regeneration of Cinderford Town Centre.

AMION are also currently evaluating Canterbury’s Levelling Up Fund scheme.
