£1.26million Government investment for Shirebrook

A £1.26million Government investment in an initiative in Shirebrook, Nottinghamshire, in the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership area was announced today (December 14).

Communities Minister Lord Nick Bourne (pictured third from right) was in the area to mark the investment; a grant to the Bolsover District from the Government’s Controlling Migration Fund (CMF), which has so far awarded £33million to local authorities, to ease local pressures in areas which have received significant numbers of migrants.

The grant to the Shirebrook area, which comes under Bolsover District Council control, is a two year investment to help improve access to public services, stage community events, improve the Market Square; and ease pressures on local services including housing, schooling and health services resulting from recent migration.  

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership is the private sector-led partnership of businesses, local authorities, skills and training providers, community and voluntary services, and others which promotes economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

D2N2 Chief Executive David Ralph was invited to today’s event and to meet the Minister.

Shirebrook project ‘Building Resilience’, based within the District Council’s offices at Clowne, is managed by Shirebrook Forward NG20; which was formed by the Bolsover Partnership as a multi-agency group focusing on working positively with the local community, to bring about benefits and improvements.

Lord Bourne said today: “Over recent years Shirebrook has seen significant economic growth and is an example of the real benefits migration can bring to Britain.

“However, we recognise that population change in a short space of time can put pressure on local services. That’s why we are making funding available to support areas like Bolsover, who have ambitious plans to ease pressures on services and also build stronger more integrated communities.”

Councillor Karl Reid, Bolsover District Council Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, (pictured second from left) added: “Our work will focus on what residents have told us are important to them, so together with our partners we will use the funding to bring the community together in various ways; including through events, making the most of our physical assets like the Market Square, and tackling rogue landlords and improving access to health services.”
