Growing Places Fund:

The Government’s £730 million Growing Places Fund loan scheme supports key infrastructure projects designed to unlock wider economic growth, create jobs and build houses.

Across England a large number of regeneration schemes have been stalled or delayed due to instances of prior lack of investment in infrastructure, or land assembly through market or the planning process.

GPF loans are allocated through LEPs to schemes that will accelerate the building of homes, office and commercial development space such as site access/site clearance, broadband and transport infrastructure, utilities, refurbishment of buildings and flood defence barriers.
