MP for Workington constituency, Mark Jenkinson, welcomes the £11.5 million funding for fantastic Maryport improvements.
Maryport had been identified as one of the towns entitled to apply for Future High Streets Fund from central government.
The aim of the Future High Streets Fund is to renew and reshape town centres and high streets in a way that drives growth, improves experience and ensures future sustainability.
Mark Jenkinson MP said ‘I am delighted that Maryport has been allocated £11.5 million to improve the high street and deliver some of the projects I was involved in as portfolio holder for economic development at Allerdale Borough Council.
I was pleased to locate my constituency office in Maryport which provided a good location for constituents. I am delighted that the town has received this money which will enable a number of investments into various projects to improve the high street.
I am very much looking forward to seeing these projects commence which will provide a real boost to the town of Maryport- a big stepping stone as we continue our levelling up agenda.’
