Doncaster launch bid for city status
Doncaster has launched its bid for City Status as part of the Plantinum Jubilee Celebrations next year .
Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster and chair of Team Doncaster partnership, said:
“We’ve been waiting a long time – this will be our fourth attempt and we believe the time is right, given how far we have come, that Doncaster City becomes a reality.
“Lots of people I meet already think we are a city – and we are in all but name. We think, look and behave like a city and we have so much more than a lot of cities already including an international airport, a wildlife park, a racecourse, historic and modern architecture including only one of three Mansion Houses in the country – our people, communities and businesses and innovators – there is so much to share.
“I am immensely proud of Doncaster. I know Doncaster is already on the map for so many brilliant things and certainly this royal stamp of approval will boost our fortunes even further.
