Residents can find out more about the historic £720m devolution deal for Greater Lincolnshire, with a series of 21 public events confirmed across the area.   

Between 9th and 25th January the devolution roadshow will visit the length and breadth of Greater Lincolnshire. It’s part of the public consultation that runs until 29th January. 

Stops have been confirmed for Cleethorpes, Grimsby, Sleaford, Ashby, Boston, Gainsborough, Crowle, Scunthorpe, Bourne, Immingham, Brigg, Louth, Grantham, Stamford, Barton upon Humber, Skegness, Spalding, Market Rasen and Lincoln. 

The events are a great opportunity to drop in and find out more about the landmark deal, which would bring £720m in extra cash, new jobs, and a host of new powers to the area, supercharging skills and creating game-changing opportunities for young people in the process. 

Councillor Martin Hill, Leader of Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We really value the opportunity to talk to residents face to face, so these events are a great way for people to find out more about the difference devolution could make in their community.  

“There will be local councillors and staff there to answer any questions, and you can have your say by completing the devolution survey.”
