Full list of 100 areas in UK getting ‘levelling-up funds’ in 2021 Budget


Rishi Sunak has apparently made the first step in trying to “level up” the country by £1.7billion to 107 local authorities.

Tory led council, Derbyshire County Council received the single biggest grant worth £49.6m for its two projects, the South Derby growth zone and infinity garden village.

The growth zone aims to deliver 4,750 new homes and 5,000 new jobs.

Mr Sunak hoped his Budget would deliver strong public services, infrastructure innovation and skills.

The Chancellor also aimed for his levelling up agenda to be the golden thread that runs through this Spending Review and Budget, delivering on Tory promises to spread opportunity across our country.

He explained he was allocating the first round of bids from the “Levelling Up Fund”, noting it would be £1.7 billion to “invest in the infrastructure of everyday life in over 100 local areas”.

So which councils got a portion of this initial levelling up pot?



Boris Johnson has said levelling up is ‘the greatest project that any government can embark on’
