Business funding opportunities up for grabs

Business | Press | News

Local organisations could get a slice of a 2 million grant that is being made available to fund projects in the Greater Peterborough area that are designed to contribute to the economic development of the city with a focus on developing skills or employment opportunities.

Around 2 million is being made available for capital projects and a further 200,000 for revenue projects by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) and Peterborough City Council is urging local organisations to put forward projects that need a cash injection.

The initiative will support Peterborough's development as a bigger and better city in which to live and work and help drive its regeneration agenda forward.

Neil Darwin, Economic Regeneration Manager for the city council, said, "We are delighted to be in a position to take advantage of EEDA funds to enable organisations to develop and create an environment that promotes continued economic development in the Greater Peterborough and Fenland areas. We hope many local organisations will seize this exciting opportunity and find out more about the initiative."

He added, "Over the last few years EEDA funds have been used to support various projects aimed at developing our local economy, such as the Peterborough Enterprise Centre, set to open early next year in the city centre. The Centre will act as a central point and will enable organisations such as Business Link and The Prince's Trust, to provide business support services from a local base."

Greater Peterborough Economic Development Partnership (GPEDP) - a private and public sector partnership for the area - will co-ordinate the initiative and include successful funding bids as part of its Business Plan from April 2005 to March 2006.

Private and public sector organisations should submit their project proposals, particularly those focusing on skills and employment issues, by 4pm on Thursday, 30 December, 2004.

For further information or an Expression of Interest form, contact Peterborough City Council's Economic Regeneration Team on (01733) 742571 or 742675.

All applicants are requested to provide an e-mail address when applying for an Expression of Interest form.
