The final submission of Tees Valley Unlimited’s Strategic Economic Plan to Government is due on the 31st March 2014. As part of the Government’s Growth Deals, LEPs can seek a share of the new £2bn Local Growth Fund to spend on the delivery of their Strategic Economic Plan. Therefore, a key part of the Plan is the ‘Ask’ from Local Growth Funding to enable TVU to target its identified growth priorities and focus its resources on areas that create jobs and growth.
The submission of TVU’s Economic Plan in March will include the final bid to Government for 2015/16 Local Growth Funding (plus 2016/17 for Skills Capital projects). The fund is focused predominantly on capital projects, and on Friday 17th January TVU issued a call for projects seeking Local Growth Funding.
The call will close on Thursday 13th February. To find out more about the TVU Local Growth Fund and how to apply go to: http://bit.ly/1aX9Mcu
