Background

Information about the Humber LEP’s previous Growth Deals is available on our website.

Government announced at the Budget in March 2016 that there would be a third round of Growth Deals with LEPs.  LEPs were given until 28 July 2016 to submit Growth Deal proposals to Government.

The Humber LEP initiated work to develop a project pipeline in late 2015/16.  This provided candidate projects which support the LEP’s Strategic Economic Plan, ready to put forward for the next Growth Deal or other funding opportunities.

The LEP worked with project sponsors to develop their projects to Outline Business Case stage.  These were then assessed and prioritised, and some formed part of the LEP’s proposal for a further Growth Deal.
