The Town Council has continued to provide high quality services throughout Immingham and we will continue to look at improving the provisions for our residents.

Our “Community Hub”, brings various services under one roof such as NELC Customer Services, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership, Lincs Inspire Library, Care, The DWP (Job Centre), Grimsby Institute, Humberside Police and Immingham Museum. Working hand in hand the community hub provides our residents and surrounding villages vital access to day to day services and community activities.

The Town Council will continue to work hard with partners and volunteers on the issues that affect the Immingham area and, with those who help enhance the area for us.

Fresh pressures on the budget and our desire to keep our high standards for you has led to an increase in the precept this year.
