Scunthorpe urban park progressing at pace

13:35, Tuesday, 2nd March 2021

Work to transform Church Square on Scunthorpe High Street into an urban park is progressing at pace following the injection of Government cash.

In a further boost for employment in North Lincolnshire, Scunthorpe-based construction company Britcon was appointed to carry out the work, which will create an attractive park in the cultural heart of the town centre.

The ambitious transformation will benefit visitors to 20-21 Visual Arts Centre and Scunthorpe Central Library, as well as students who attend the UTC.

The work has been backed by Government investment received as part of the £3.6bn Towns Fund initiative, and precedes the £10m funding boost to redevelop the former market site as part of the Future High Streets fund.
