Answer for London Enterprise Partnerships

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In March 2016 the government published its plans to invite Local Enterprise Partnerships to apply for a share of £1.8 billion to support projects in their areas. In response, the London LEP made an ambitious bid to help drive jobs and growth, a summary of which was published on the London LEP's website. We now await confirmation from Government on London's final allocation.

Once an announcement has been made, plans will be taken forward to open up the funding to bids from the public and private sectors under the proposed programme. Full criteria for bids, the timetable and general arrangements for each programme will be made available once the bidding rounds go live.
