Councillor Kay Cutts

Councillor Kay Cutts (MBE) Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council said:

“I welcome this initiative from Government. I support HS2 and the wider potential of a locally-led development corporation. It is my view that this would provide jobs and skills, which are fit for the modern era, and would help boost  the prospects of local people.

"We are working with our partners so that any development corporation takes into account the ambitions of the East Midlands Airport and the power station at Ratcliffe-on-Soar. These partners are seriously excited by this prospect.

There is much more work to do but we are making good progress. This latest statement from Government is extremely reassuring.”
