Local Growth Fund Round 3 in the South East

Back to News & Comments


GENECON has been appointed by both Essex and East Sussex County Councils to advise on project business case submissions to the South East LEP under round 3 of the Local Growth Fund. The appointments build on GENECON's extensive experience of developing and appraisaing LGF business cases across England in previous LGF rounds. The work involves advising on over 30 economic development projects across the two Counties to ensure that business cases are as strong as possible in bidding for LGF support, providing advice to project promoters and supporting project prioritisation for submissions to SELEP. Projects range across economic infrastructure, place-making and skills capital interventions to build on previous rounds of LGF funding and to drive growth across the LEP area.
