Local MP Andrew Bridgen has helped to secure a share of £500,000 to develop plans and proposals to reopen the Ivanhoe Line. The funding will be used to explore the feasibility of the project in more detail, after the Department for Transport decided the project was worthy of further consideration.
Andrew Bridgen MP has welcomed the Government’s confirmation that Leicestershire County Council will see its budget increased by 7.4% this year, while North West Leicestershire District Council will see it’s budget increased by 6.7%, part of the Conservatives’ commitment to level up local services across the country.
Andrew Bridgen MP attended the RSPCA’s drop-in session in the House of Commons recently. He met with Chief Executive Chris Sherwood, to hear about its ‘Generation Kind’ initiative, which helps to teach compassion to new generations and work to protect animals in North West Leicestershire.
