The growth Deal projects

Icon Red diamond

What is the growth deal?

Our ambition is to transform the local economy into a global centre for talent and innovation. To achieve this we have signed a multi-million pound Growth Deal with Government which will boost the region’s skills, drive innovation, target support to help small businesses to grow and improve transport and infrastructure.

New Anglia LEP’s total Growth Deal from Government is £223.5m to 2021. To date, it has led to the creation of 3,005 jobs, 2,189 new learners, 802 new homes, and matched funding totalling £676.4m.
