Grimsby boosted by levelling up for local industry

Levelling Up Secretary Greg Clark has announced that funding will be allocated to allow for the repair of crucial bridges that connect Grimsby and Immingham.

The bridges are not only essential for local industries and tourism but will also secure new jobs for the future of the region.

Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Levelling Up, said:

“The work to level up vital towns like Grimsby requires acting on what local people say is important and acting on what local people want – including local infrastructure.

The funding we are announcing today will provide a vital lifeline for Grimsby’s industry now and in the future and I am looking forward to seeing how our investment is helping local communities to flourish and further unlock the area’s potential.”

A sum of £8 million has been confirmed to fix the damaged bridges, which connect the key ports in the region as well as serving residents and tourists. It is estimated that the route provides around £2.5 billion to the seafood economy of the local area.

Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, Cllr Philip Jackson, said:

“I am delighted that our collaboration with government on the levelling up agenda is bearing fruit. The key infrastructure investment announced today, as well as our work with Homes England, focused on Garth Lane and wider town centre regeneration, are essential elements of our drive to deliver sustainable local economic growth for our residents, our communities, and our businesses. I look forward to our collaboration with government continuing.”

The government has already awarded over £45 million through the pilot of the Town Deal, Towns Fund, and the Future High Streets programme, to support the town’s plans to renew and reshape the centre. This also includes plans to build 129 new high quality, low carbon homes in the town.

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
