The Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) covering Derbyshire, Notts and Leicestershire have been awarded a total of £250 million of Government funding over the next five years to support local projects which create jobs and generate growth.

D2N2, which covers Derbyshire and Notts, received £174 million, while the Leicester and Leicestershire LEP received £76 million.

George Cowcher, chief executive of the chamber, said: “This is positive news and businesses will welcome the fact that, after four years of hard work to produce these proposals and negotiate with Government, the money – which will make a real difference to businesses on the ground here in the East Midlands – is finally starting to materialise.”
