Great Grimsby Town Deal

In 2018, a new Town Deal partnership deal was sealed, with a number of transformative projects for the Grimsby area.

The signing of the Town Deal marked the beginning of a stronger relationship between central government and local partners to support the regeneration of Greater Grimsby.

The Deal is making sure that Grimsby is at the centre of major investment proposals, improving key roads and establishing Enterprise Zones to attract and support businesses to the area and increase further investment and employment.

The Town Deal recognises the government’s commitment in the Industrial Strategy White Paper to work hand-in-hand with local communities which have strong local partnerships, ambition, and a commitment to regenerate their areas.

These interventions will help accelerate the delivery of jobs and new homes set out in the Council’s adopted Local plan (link), which set out ambitious targets for 8,800 jobs and over 9,700 new homes by 2032.
