Local Growth Fund Projects

Local Growth Funds provide capital funding from the Government's Local Growth Fund to local economies via Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). LEPs then invest in local projects which help overcome strategic barriers to growth - from road improvements and incubator space, through to new skills facilities and space for innovation.


Although we are not taking new applications at the moment, please feel free to submit a Project Interest Form in the meantime.

This will enable the Business Board to hold a pipeline of projects ready to go for when a new round of funding becomes available. If your project is potentially appropriate for funding, we will be in touch. To note: For projects applying for more than £500K, the applications will be presented to the Entrepreneurs Assessment Panel (EAP). Terms of Reference for the EAP can be found here.
