Today the PM announced his ‘New Deal’ for Britain, which means more cash for our area!
Here's the headlines:
•Government to kickstart the economic recovery from coronavirus with £5 billion of infrastructure projects.
•101 places to receive at least an additional £500,000 to spend on projects such as improvements to parks, high streets or transport links, including Mansfield.
•Part of a package of £96 million for town centres and high streets via the Towns Fund, and comes on top of the £3.2 billion provided to local authorities throughout the coronavirus outbreak
This is great news. By supercharging the infrastructure investment we can create jobs and level up, just as we promised. It's vital for our area, and the extra cash for Town Deal projects is very welcome too!
