Single Local Growth Fund

In July 2014 the South East Local Enterprise Partnership secured a £442 million funding package as part of the Government's localism agenda to boost economic growth in the South East.

The funding was allocated based on the South East Local Enterprise Partnership Strategic Economic Plan. This set out the infrastructure and business needs required to support economic growth in the South East Local Enterprise Partnership area.

The majority of the Single Local Growth Fund has been allocated to the delivery of a number of transport projects which will support the delivery of new houses and jobs. Kent's allocation of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership award is £98 million for transport initiatives. This funding will be made available from April 2015 until March 2021.
