Prime Minister Boris Johnson has written to David Morris MP following a letter David sent to the Prime Minister showing support for Eden Project North from a list of 51 MP’s.
In the letter Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
‘I recognise the potential that the Eden Project North offers Morecambe and Lunesdale and welcome the continued enthusiasm and support for the local partners and Government officials for this exciting and ambitious project.’
He further adds:
‘I recognise all of the hard work that has gone into the Eden Project North so far. The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities met representatives of Lancashire LEP and the Eden Project at the recent Convention for the North to discuss this further, including how the funding package could be restructured to make it suitable for the Government’s support funds. Officials in the Cities and Local Growth Unit will continue to work with the Eden Project on this and I look forward to hearing how the project progresses’
Following receipt of the letter David Morris MP said:
‘I am pleased that the Prime Minister is taking a personal interest in the success of the Eden Project in Morecambe, especially as we are now in a critical stage of securing Government funding support. I have made sure that the project has the support of Ministers, this is crucial to find the right funding stream we can apply to ensure the funding bid meets the criteria and is successful. We are now at a critical stage of the Eden project North and I look forward to being able to share a positive update shortly.’
