Set up The Ark (National Flood resilience centre) in Scunthorpe

I've been working with Humberside Fire Authority, Hull University and North Lincs Council since my election, on a plan for a national flood resilience centre 'The Ark' to be built in Scunthorpe. I think we are a great location for a centre like this, it is an ambitious plan for a national centre of excellence and it's time we had some national projects in the North. If commissioned the Ark will help bring jobs to our local community, provide training to flood responders nationally, and serve as a centre for flood prevention research. I am really keen to see this plan succeed and I'll be working hard to support it.
