Growth Programme – February 2017

Speaking at the Oxford Farming Conference, Andrea Leadsom announced that £120 million of funding will be made available to support farmers, grow businesses, and generate jobs in rural communities. This money is part of the Growth Programme distributed by the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). A quick search of “project calls” reveals that there have only been 10 calls for projects by LEPs in the South East and they all closed at least a year ago; so while this isn’t new money the sentiment was certainly welcome.
