Jason McCartney MP is delighted that the Chancellor has announced in today’s Budget that he is allocating over £5 million to help regenerate a massive former textile mill complex in the centre of Marsden, West Yorkshire. The multi-million pound regeneration project also involves private investment.
Colne Valley MP Jason has been working with Council officers to submit a Levelling Up bid for New Mills, known locally as Crowther's Mill, on Brougham Road, to see it transformed into industrial units, office space and some residential units.
Having seen what can be done with Globe Mills in Slaithwaite, which also received Government cash, I’ve had this vision for New Mills in Marsden. I’d like to thank David Shepherd and Simon Taylor at the Council for believing we can do this and to Mike Haigh and the Crowther family for their vision too.
The hard work starts now as we work to deliver a regeneration project the community of Marsden can be proud of.
Alongside the £11.5 billion Transpennine Route Upgrade, which will see brand new stations in Marsden and Slaithwaite, the rollout of gigabit broadband and the soon-to-be-open new A&E unit at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, there are many exciting investment projects happening in our wonderful part of Yorkshire.
