Growing Our Economy

We are ambitious in our desire to make Norfolk and Suffolk the place where businesses choose to be.

The next step in driving effective delivery of the Economic Strategy and the Local Industrial Strategy is to develop an overarching Investment Plan. The Investment Plan will capture the interventions that will deliver the ambitions and goals in the Economic Strategy and Local Industrial Strategy – projects, programmes and initiatives – which require funding.

The Investment Plan will enable the LEP and partners to be in a positive position to secure future funding when opportunities arise and will ensure interventions deliver the required impact and outcomes.

Given the current exceptional circumstances around COVID19 and the need for the LEP to redivert a large number of its own staff to support the economic response to COVID19, we have decided to keep the Expression of Interest call open and under review.

We will set a new deadline for Expressions of Interest once we have a better idea of timescales – likely to be around June/July.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted Expressions of Interest to date. We will be reviewing all those that have been submitted, but this will be done over a longer period than originally planned and one of the team will come back to you if they have any questions.

Please continue to submit Expressions of Interest as and when these are ready to

We would like to reiterate that we are keen to receive Expressions of Interest for projects which support Clean Growth.
