Sent on behalf of Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader, North East Lincolnshire Council
Good morning and I hope this email finds you well.
I am writing to you today to ask for your support in helping North East Lincolnshire to secure millions of pounds from Central Government that will enable the transformation of Grimsby Town Centre.
Monies totalling £25m have been ‘ring-fenced’ for projects in Grimsby’s central area as the next stage of the ‘Town Deal’ gathers pace. As you may be well aware, Grimsby is one of 101 urban areas across the country to be part of an expanded national Towns Fund programme.
To enable those funds to be secured, the council is creating a ‘Great Grimsby Masterplan and Investment Plan’. This will outline regeneration projects that need these funds and which residents and businesses want to see developed over the next five years. It is separate to the bid that will be submitted later this month for £25m from the Future High Streets Fund, (FHSF), details of which were released a few weeks ago.
It is vital that our Masterplan and Investment Plan has buy-in, input and support from people like you, who live, work or spend their spare time locally. Your views will help to shape it into a vision for Town Centre transformation.
From Wednesday, 15 July until 22 July, we are asking if you will help us by going online at https://virtualengage.arup.com/grimsby-town-centre/ where you will find a virtual presentation, explaining everything you need to know about the Masterplan’s creation and how you can help, along with the survey to complete. All survey respondents are being put into a draw with four £25 Top Town Market shopping vouchers to be won.
If you want any further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01472 32 4602 and my colleagues will be happy to help in any way they can.
Thank you for your continued support and together we can make a positive difference to our town.
