I am very pleased that planning permission has been given to the new History Centre. This project to create the south west's largest art gallery, a huge museum uniting our city's archives and exhibits will be a real showcase for Plymouth. Creating this new space right in the heart of our city is bold, ambitious and long overdue.
This is what a Labour Council delivered for our city. We may not be in power anymore but the positive legacy of a Labour Council lives on. The History Centre will be a superb addition to our city and something that we should all be very proud of. Congratulations to everyone involved in its creation, funding and planning. You've done our city proud.
