Plans approved for a new centre in Grimsby

28 October 2019

We’re delighted that plans have been approved for an impressive new YMCA centre in Grimsby.

YMCA Humber has secured permission to build a new 74-unit centre on Freeman Street, with a cultural cafe to offer professional training and work opportunities, a health and wellbeing space, conference facilities and exhibition and performance spaces.

We acted as the development agent for the project, advising the YMCA on funding and audit matters.

Nick Worboys, Director of Development and Sales at Longhurst Group, said: “We have been involved in this project in various guises for 10 years and so it’s fantastic to hear that planning permission has now been granted.

“This new centre will enable YMCA Humber to do even more to tackle homelessness in North East Lincolnshire and we’re very proud to be able to support that by helping to bring it to fruition.”

The new centre is seen as central to the wider redevelopment of Freeman Street and will enable YMCA Humber to relocate from its current home, allowing it to meet the diverse needs of its residents more effectively.
