Growth Deals provide funds to LEP's for projects that benefit the local area and economy and are providing support for local businesses, creating and safeguarding jobs, delivering strategic infrastructure schemes, developing hundreds of new homes, and investing in education.

The LEP works closely with local government and other partners to ensure effective communication, strategy and delivery and the first of these key projects are now underway.

The Strategic Economic Plan is our route to working with government and securing other funding.  In 2015 we performed 8th highest across all 39 LEPs, due to the quality and deliverability of our strategic economic plans (Growth Plans) by securing £146.2m of growth related funding for Greater Lincolnshire.  

Our Growth Deal to date, will bring a further £235m of public and private investment, build 3,950 new homes, create 3,300 jobs and deliver 165,500sq metres of new commercial floor space. (i)

The LEP is currently undergoing a third competitive round of Growth Deal funding which, if successful, could bring in over £100m of additional funding.

As part of the Growth Deal, the LEP has developed frameworks to ensure robust governance and delivery of the projects supported.
