In January 2017, the Department for Communities and Local Government confirmed the award of £71.1m to Enterprise M3 as the third allocation of Growth Deal funding which now totals £219.1m. This allocation has the potential to create and safeguard more than 15,000 jobs and deliver over 6,000 additional homes. Planned investment in transport will ease congestion in Basingstoke and Guildford, while businesses in some of the LEP area will benefit from investments in digital connectivity. The latest Growth Deal allocation will also fund investments in Further Education colleges to help the local workforce develop the skills they need to succeed in today's economy.
Enterprise M3 have released a Funding Prospectus for 2019-2021, details can be found here.
Our Annual Report for 2017/18 gives a progress update on the delivery of the first year of the Growth Deal and our Board Papers provide regular progress updates.
