Devonport is on the up. During the election I campaigned for a 'welcome to Devonport' sign to help promote Devonport as a destination for tourists and local people.
Devonport has a lot to be very proud of: Devonport Guildhall, Devonport Column, Mount Wise Pools and Plymouth Albion to name a few landmarks.
Very soon there'll be a new landmark and destination open: Devonport Market Hall.
I had the opportunity to see the Market Hall for myself at the start of the year. It is an incredible building and will house some truly innovative businesses and organisations. This is precisely the type of investment Devonport needs.
Huge congratulations to RIO, the Labour-run City Council, the three Labour Councillors, Plymouth University, City College Plymouth and all those involved in bringing forward this project. This investment is brilliant news for Devonport and great news for Plymouth. Well done!
