The next phase of the Future High Streets Fund work is underway as a tender is launched to find a specialist development management organisation to lead the project.
Earlier this year, the government awarded £17.3 million for the Future High Streets Fund bid from the Council and the owners of Freshney Place Shopping Centre.
As previously reported, the project will provide a leisure-led scheme for the centre of Grimsby town which incorporates a new market and food hall alongside new leisure and retail units and a new cinema.
The overall aim of the project is to provide a new space for people to enjoy the town centre’s day and evening economy.
The scheme will be delivered through the removal of some of the 1960s and 1970s buildings and retail space at the western end of Freshney Place.
The organisation contracted will be responsible for coordinating the whole project, from overseeing the work to progress planning applications, developing the business plans, and through to the construction of the new facility.
