Grimsby Town Centre
Within Grimsby Town centre, there are two current projects:
Highway and public spaces improvements to Grimsby Town Centre Civic Quarter
Work started in January 2019 to carry out paving and public area improvements in the Town Hall square area of Grimsby town centre.The £500,000 project, which is part of a wider programme of improvements to the town centre, has received funding from the Local Growth Fund, secured from Government by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership as part of its commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.
The work follows on from the improvements completed in 2016 from Wellowgate up to Town Hall Square and will see a continuation of the new style paving used in the town centre.
Yorkstone paving will be laid around Grimsby Town Hall and some of the large and overgrown trees will be replaced with smaller varieties to match those installed on Osborne Street near the Grimsby Library.
This work is due to be completed in May 2019.
St James' Square
The project to develop St James' Square in Grimsby is part funded by £1.8m from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Deals with Government.
A consultation on the future of the public space is due to open on 1 February 2019. There are two phases to the project and the first phase will focus on improving the public space and area in St James Square. Phase two will focus on the re-development of St James House.
The public consultation will focus on the first phase of the project and ask for people’s views on two proposed options which are based on the needs of existing and potential users of the square.
The exhibition boards are available to look at on the links on the right, and the consultation form is available until 10 Feb on https://stjamessquare.questionpro.eu/.
