LEP receives additional Growing Places cash

Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership has been handed £6.3m from additional cash released in the Budget for the Growing Places Fund. Liverpool had already received £12.9m.

The fund enables Local Enterprise Partnerships to grant loans for immediate construction of access roads, services, ground works and other infrastructure, enabling stalled projects to go ahead without further delay.

Robert Hough, chairman of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, said: "We welcome this additional support from Government. The LEP has already approved a number of projects that will benefit from the Growing Places Fund – this additional money means more stalled projects can be kick-started which will help generate jobs and homes in the city region."
