St Helens MP Conor McGinn reacts to Earlestown’s success at Leveling Up

MP Conor McGinn has shared his response to Earlestown’s successful Leveling Up bid.

Earlestown secured £20m from the government’s Leveling Up fund to regenerate the town centre.

The City Center Redevelopment initiative was driven by the Government Fund, which will contribute to projects including the restoration of Earlestown’s famous City Hall as a new hub and workplace, and the regeneration of the historic City Center Market Square.

Conor McGinn, MP for St Helens North, said of the successful bid: “It is great news that our joint bid by Council and MP for St Helens North to the Leveling Up Fund has been successful.

“With the £20m Leveling Up Fund secured for Earlestown’s regeneration, we are on track to deliver the regeneration plans for the historic Market Square and reopen Town Hall as a new centre.

“The approach we have taken as a team of political, business and community leaders is to be ambitious for the whole district and every part of St City Center and surrounding areas.

“But while I welcome this funding, I also realize that it is nothing compared to the huge cuts in local services over the last decade. The conservatives’ promise to upgrade our region has not materialized.

“The only thing that will really transform our area, create a thriving local economy and provide decent public services, is a Labor government in Westminster working with a Labor council and local MP in St Helens.”

Earlestown is among 15 projects in the region to receive second round grants, including a new university campus in Blackpool and a major regeneration of Preston’s parks and the Eden Project North tourist attraction in Morecambe.
