I'm delighted to inform you that we have secured £20 million to spend in Yarm and Eaglescliffe from the Government's Levelling Up fund. Myself and local councillor, Dan Fagan, want to get your view on how this should be spent and give you a say in shaping the shovel-ready suggestions put forward by the local authority.
The Council have already put forward a bid suggesting where this can be spent improving Yarm Town Centre and Preston Park, as well as adding a number of cycle routes across the area.
This comes in addition to the £15 million already secured to improve Eaglescliffe Station and I'm pushing for more services from both Eaglescliffe and Yarm Stations. We are currently seeing improvements to the A19 and have gained funding to improve the A66 so as to help keep Teesside moving.
I want to know how you think this £20 million should be spent to improve our area.
Please completed the survey below and have your say. Let's make sure this money is well spent improving our area for all.
