Julian joins North Yorkshire MPs writing to the Prime Minister regarding Green Book reforms to help support A64 upgrade funding bid

August 25, 2020

Julian has recently signed a letter coordinated by Thirsk and Malton MP, Kevin Hollinrake, asking the Prime Minister to press ahead with reforms to Green Book rules, which currently favour investment bids in more prosperous areas.

As the Government continues with it’s bold agenda to level up our regional economies to bring them in line with London and the South East, Green Book rules must be reformed to allow more funding bids to be awarded across the north.

From a meeting with Highways England, it is understood that the much-needed improvements to the A64 that would dramatically improve the economic fortunes of large swathes of North Yorkshire, will be judged on the existing Green Book basis and will have to compete with rival schemes in the South.

Julian awaits the Prime Minister’s response and hopes he
bring these reforms forward to provide a much needed levelling of the regional economic playing field right across the country.
