Yesterday Boris announced the start of the economic fightback against the impact of Covid-19.  With a series of bold announcements across the nation for, hospital buildings, new and revitalised school buildings, and launching a High Street fightback.  

Locally, it is vital that this constituency is at the table securing these schemes.  

  • I'm thrilled that in terms of schools both Cockermouth School and Bassenthwaite Primary School are in line for improved facilities to support learning and education.   
  • Workington High Street has been allocated additional funds to support High Street projects 

Add to this the already announced £40million of Town Deals, High Street fund and Heritage Action Zones.

The bureaucracy of planning is also getting a shake up to enable housing and construction to increase.  

This is an ambitious and bold move by the Government to level up constituencies like Workington who need to level up.
