I an delighted to welcome a historic £67m town deal that will bring over 8,800 jobs and provide 10,000 new homes within the next 15 years.
This is the Government’s eyes on our town, recognising that we have got huge amounts of potential, we have got loads of commitment, loads of ambition, lots of people around who have got a real affection for Grimsby and who want to see it back to its former glory days.
The plans are ambitious. This is a long term plan. We have previously seen a lot of plans come and go, but the fact the Government are here, that they are signing on the dotted line, I think it’s a real show of commitment.
