Littlecoates Community Centre is new hub for local policing team

The local policing team for Yarborough ward will be using Littlecoates Community Centre as their hub.

Following conversations between ward councillors and the policing team, North East Lincolnshire Council is pleased to announce the news.

Yarborough ward councillor, Cllr Martyn Sandford, has worked to make this happen. “I have been working hard with Yarborough policing team for the past 12 months to get a policing hub at Littlecoates Community Centre as I think it will benefit the area,” he said.

“Having this hub will reassure residents in the area that they feel safe and will give them a chance to see the policing team for advice on crime prevention, or if residents need to have a chat in a confidential and informal way regarding concerns that they may have.”

Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “I am really pleased to see this opportunity taken and for the local policing team to be able to use Littlecoates Community Centre as their hub. Cllr Sandford has worked hard to put this together and I’m delighted this has come to fruition.”

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Tom Stevens added: “We are pleased to have worked with our partners at North East Lincolnshire Council to secure this location.

“It is important that my officers are in the right areas in the community and are accessible, and this facility will allow us to connect better with the residents of the Little Coates and Laceby Road area.

“Our officers will be at the hub on an advertised basis, and I would encourage any local residents to go down to either discuss any concerns you have in the area, or to seek advice on police-related matters.

“Please speak with us and let us know what is affecting you in your area. Myself and my teams want to know about the issues that impact your community, and we are guided by the information you provide.

“You can find out when officers will be there via our social media accounts or on the Yarborough team page of our website.”

Cabinet support for Levelling Up bids

PLANS to bid for Levelling UP Fund monies to kickstart an ambitious transformation of Cleethorpes, and re-invent Grimsby Town Centre have been approved by North East Lincolnshire Council’s Cabinet.

Supporting the three bids to Central Government, which are being worked up for submission in early July,  Council leader Cllr Philip Jackson, who has Portfolio Holder responsibility for regeneration, said:

“Our ambition is real and these bids show how we are prepared to look at ways in which we can realise positive and true change that will benefit our town centre economy in Grimsby and our local and visitor economy in Cleethorpes. We now look forward to what we hope will be a successful bidding round and we can move forward.”

The authority is allowed to submit one bid for each constituency – so one for Cleethorpes and one for Grimsby, with another ringfenced for transport projects. The following are being worked up:

  • A constituency bid of up to £20m for Cleethorpes which will incorporate schemes identified in the Cleethorpes’ Masterplan as important strategic development locations, and deliverable within the timescales. The area of focus is Market Place, Sea Road and Pier Gardens, and, if appropriate, strategic site acquisition.
  •  A constituency bid of up to £20m for Grimsby. As reported, this would be used to carry out work, which was to be funded by the Future High Streets Funding (FHSF). This is already secured for the reinvention of the western end of Freshney Place and the Market Hall to bring leisure activities to the town centre. If formally approved, that pre-secured FHSF leisure scheme monies will be used to buy Freshney Place. Again, as reported, the shopping centre purchase is subject to Full Council approval, having also been approved by this week’s Cabinet.
  • A transport specific bid of up to £20m for the development of a transportation hub in Grimsby Town Centre with potential additional projects to be considered around the electrification of buses and repairs to strategic bridge infrastructure.

A survey is currently online, asking for the views of people to support the two Grimsby bids. To take part go to: external site
