Growing Places Fund – performance

The Growing Places Fund (GPF)  loan scheme is a Government-back scheme, put in place specifically to assist stalled transport and infrastructure projects that will boost the local economy.

GPF loans are allocated through the LLEP to schemes that will accelerate the building of homes, office and commercial development space.

There have been three rounds of GPF and to date, a total of £13.5 million has been loaned in our area, which will yield the following outputs:
