During Prime Minister’s Questions he asked the Prime Minister to look into ‘how he might help accelerate the process of getting from successful funding announcement to spades in the ground so that residents can benefit from those investments’.

The Prime Minister described Mr Bradley as a ‘fantastic champion for Mansfield’ and welcomed the fact Mansfield had been awarded £12 million as part of the Towns Funds.

Mr Bradley said: “I’m pleased I had the chance to highlight the huge amounts of funding Mansfield has received in recent years.

"We’re clearly a key part of Government’s levelling up agenda, and I have taken every opportunity to raise our case with Ministers across all departments.

“We’ve been successful with our Towns fund, and we’re bidding for Levelling Up Fund money for the town centre too. There’s a lot going on for Mansfield.

“It’s always welcome when we are awarded with funding and I hope the Prime Minister will look at how we can accelerate the current process and deliver on these things faster.”
