Jack, Jonathan and I work together constantly as three Stoke-on-Trent Conservative Members of Parliament together with Abi leading the Conservative Council to deliver for our city as a whole. Stoke-on-Trent’s motto “Vis Unita Fortior” means “United Strength is Stronger”, and today’s announcement by the Chancellor of £56 Million for our three regeneration bids is testament to our collective impact at Westminster.
We have already brought significant investment to the city in extra funding for education, health, skills, welfare and safety, and this massive boost to our regeneration plans shows that our message is landing and investment in the transformation of Stoke-on-Trent is recognised as essential to the Government’s Levelling Up agenda.
Stoke-on-Trent is a city of six towns, but our future success relies on developing the city centre in Hanley, and investing around the mainline station. I would like to thank Jonathan and Jack for supporting the two Central projects for the Goods Yard site and the City Centre regeneration area as they benefit residents across the city by providing new jobs, homes and investment into our local economy. The third bid enables projects in Stoke (on the Spode Works site), Tunstall and Longton.
We are all thrilled to have secured all three bids for the City, and I am confident that the winning formula we have as a united Stoke-on-Trent team will see more successes going forward.
