Town Deals

Icon Red diamond

In summer 2019, the Government announced a £3.6bn Towns Fund to support 101 Town Deals across England.

Five towns in our region were invited to apply – Norwich, Ipswich, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and King’s Lynn.

A representative from New Anglia LEP sits on each of the local Town Deal boards.

 

Norwich received confirmation in October 2020 that it has been successful in a £25m bid. It will  help the council to realise their ‘2040 Vision’, which includes a new digital hub, a digi-tech factory and an advanced construction and engineering (ACE) centre. These developments will grow the city’s digital sector, bringing new jobs and opportunities to the community.
