"Conservative Government announces £20 million Levelling Up Fund for Worksop"
When I was first elected as your MP, I promised I would do my best to attract and fight for investment into our area, and I am delighted to see Worksop benefiting from record sums as a result of this Conservative government.
This is despite Labour-controlled Bassetlaw District Council's failure to submit their previous bid for the fund on time.
My work as part of the committee dedicated to working on this new bid and the lobbying of Government ministers has finally paid off, and this funding has now been secured for the people of Worksop.
The £20 million project I have helped secure will allow for the redevelopment of the Priory Centre to focus on leisure and also open up opportunities for the Chesterfield Canal.
It comes as Bassetlaw welcomes a share of £3.3 million via the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, £17.6 million for an A&E Emergency Village at Bassetlaw Hospital, and £3.5 million for the Worksop Skills Hub.
As your local MP, it will be my job to continue our campaign to ensure this project is delivered on time and on budget.
I will be hosting a Facebook Live event on Thursday 9th February at 7:30 PM. If you would like to participate in that event to ask questions about how this funding will improve our town centre, please fill in the form below:
