#StrongerHereford welcomes Housing Secretary to Hereford
Local MP Jesse Norman joined Lauren Rogers (Chair and Project Manager of Rural Media), Julian Vaughan (Green Dragon Hotel), Kath Hey (Mayor of Hereford) and local councillors to show Robert Jenrick, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, round Hereford.
The visit took them from Hereford Cathedral via Church Street into High Town, around Maylords to Widemarsh Street and the new market development. From there they visited NMITE, where Mr Jenrick saw some of the engineering studios and equipment.
It was a fantastic opportunity to show the best the old and new which forms the platform for our Towns Fund bid to his department for Hereford.
What is the Town Deal?
Town Deals are part of the government’s plan to level up all regions by boosting productivity, skills and living standards.
What does the board do?
The responsibility of the board is to engage with people who live, work and visit Hereford. Those ideas will be taken to Government in January 2021 to ‘strike a deal’ to fund local projects.
