Investment for growth is a vital step towards helping our area overcome significant barriers to growth. With constrained public funding, the LEP needed to find innovative ways to ensure the funding they previously received had the greatest impact, and (where possible) created future funding opportunities at the same time.

The LEP’s role was to:

  • Explore new ways of funding infrastructure and enterprise investment
  • Identify the finance gap for innovative SMEs looking to expand
  • Help develop a 2014-2020 European Funding Programme that meets the need of our area
  • Design innovative financial models to make best possible use of Enterprise Zone Business Rates income and Growing Places Fund recycled funds
  • Provide clear guidance on where help, support and finance is available for enterprises
