If you are not already all over this, putting a package together for a new stadium, you should be - PDQ

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund will help to level up and create opportunity across the UK for people and places. It will operate UK-wide, using the new financial assistance powers in the UK Internal Market Bill.

The government will ramp up funding, so that total domestic UK-wide funding will at least match current EU receipts, on average reaching around of £1.5 billion a year.

A portion of the UKSPF will target places most in need across the UK, such as ex-industrial areas, deprived towns and rural and coastal communities.  

The government will develop a UK-wide framework for investment in places receiving funding and prioritising:
• investment in people and skills tailored to local needs, such as work-based training,
supplementing and tailoring national programmes (e.g. the Adult Education Budget); and other
local support (e.g. for early years)
• investment in communities and place including cultural and sporting facilities, civic, green
and rural infrastructure, community-owned assets, neighbourhood and housing improvements,
town centre and transport improvements and digital connectivity
• investment for local business including to support innovation, green and tech adoption,
tailored to local needs. Further details will be published in the New Year.

And this one...

Levelling Up Fund worth £4 billion for England.

This will invest in local infrastructure that has a visible impact on people and their communities and will support economic recovery. Moving away from a fragmented landscape with multiple funding streams, this new cross-departmental Fund for England will invest in a broad range of high value local projects up to £20 million, or more by exception, including bypasses and other local road schemes, bus lanes, railway station upgrades, regenerating eyesores,
upgrading town centres and community infrastructure, and local arts and culture.
It will be open to all local areas in England and prioritise bids to drive growth and regeneration in places in need, those facing particular challenges, and areas that have received less government investment in recent years. SR20 makes available up to £600 million in 2021-22. The government will publish a prospectus for the fund and launch the first round of competitions in the New Year

I think more like now or never, By now I mean a successful funding bid for a community stadium and the infrastructure needed to go with it. I agree GTFC will never have the funding itself with JF as major shareholder. We'll be the anchor tenant and the rent deal needs to be soft. There is precedent - West Ham. A very modest base rent that JF is prepared to guarantee and then a turnover rent on top. Get on with it John...

To coin a phrase, all the ducks are in a row. Money available, Tory councillor owns GTFC, Tory government in power, Tory MP's for both Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

Mind you, if its not Johns idea he is unlikely to look into it.

Given the Town's extremely slow progress on our already allocated £54m (?)  town improvement money i wouldnt fancy our chances of getting any more in the near future.
Also i think Cleethorpes benefitted from a coastal communities fund recently or currently ongoing so we may have already had our shot at that.

Don't forget the "Whats in it for me" factor, Tories ONLY look after themselves...

So what you're saying is there are no excuses available.
