A call for new capital projects within Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire has been announced by D2N2.
The call for new capital projects will create a pipeline of future investment propositions should further funding become available.
Like all LEPs, D2N2 is responsible for delivering the Local Growth Fund (LGF) which is worth over £250 million to the region, alongside delivering the new £44.4m Getting Building Fund (GBF) allocation from Government.
Funding from the Local Growth Fund scheme has already been invested in many projects across the region supporting job creation, new learners, and unlocking infrastructure for the delivery of new homes.
To date, D2N2 has invested in a wide variety of projects such as the £24m Institute of Advanced Manufacturing facility, the Seymour Link Road within the Markham Vale Enterprise Zone, Ada Lovelace House in Kirkby in Ashfield, and the University of Derby’s Chesterfield Higher Level Skills Centre.
A full list of our funded projects is available on the D2N2 Projects page.
D2N2 Interim Chair David Williams said, “With the recent Getting Building Fund providing £44.4 million pounds worth of investment for ten projects within our area, it’s never been more important for our region to stand ready to attract Government investment whenever the opportunity presents itself.”
“I call upon our community to bring forward strong and ambitious projects that will improve life chances for our residents, providing more jobs, more learning opportunities, and more homes.”
