Council leaders welcome multi-million pound investment across Fenland towns and villages
Millions of pounds are set to be spent in Fenland creating a construction training hub at Wisbech, providing affordable homes in Manea, developing a skills facility in March and building new business space and a manufacturing launchpad in Chatteris.
Fenland District Council leaders have welcomed the £7.5m investment from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, which will bring jobs, economic grown and much-needed new homes.
The combined authority's board agreed funding for key projects at its meeting this week, when approval was also given to Fenland’s four ‘Growing Fenland’ Masterplans for Chatteris, March, Wisbech and Whittlesey.
