Ten projects across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire have been allocated funding by Government via the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.
The investment comes as part of the Government’s Getting Building Fund, a £900 million scheme announced by the Prime Minister in June, investing in shovel-ready housing and infrastructure projects, creating jobs, and supporting economic recovery across the country.
The move is part of the government’s comprehensive plan to deliver upgrades to local infrastructure and boost skills to help fuel a green economic recovery.
As part of the announcement, £44.4million was awarded for projects within Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire, which are among 300 successful projects nationwide.
The investment will provide 4935 jobs, 1060 learners, and 3389 homes across the D2N2 region.
