Local Growth Fund

 What is the Local Growth Fund?

The Government awarded a total of £265million to the South East Midlands LEP (SEMLEP) area from 2015 to 2021 for capital projects to support growth. 
It is often also referred to as the Growth Deal. The SEMLEP Board is responsible for the funds and they ensure that the funds are spent properly.  To learn more about how decisions are made and how the money is monitored, please read SEMLEP's 2019 Assurance Framework.

The current approved programme of over 50 projects are delivered under three themes:

  • Business – supporting productivity
  • People – enhancing skills
  • Place – building transport schemes and enabling housing and employment infrastructure

The Local Growth Fund investment programme aims to deliver over 40,000 homes, 22,000 jobs and 9,000 learners by 2030.

Take a look at the projects in our investment programme section.
