Coast to Capital is seeking projects that have been stalled, due to the lack of investment, to come forward. This fund is available to both the public and private sector for projects that will be ready to implement in the short-term and will create or unlock job creation.

The Growing Places Fund is designed to be a revolving fund, so the process of receiving and evaluating projects will be an ongoing one.



The Coast to Capital Board has considered the Government's requirements and has developed a process and criteria that will allow for transparent and objective decision making.


Firstly, all potential investments in sites and infrastructure must meet our essential criteria.


The project must be:


  • Able to contribute to Coast to Capital's strategic goals for employment growth in the Coast to Capital area and move particularly in the creation of jobs
  • Ready to commence quickly
  • Able to repay with a clear mechanism
  • In need of £250,000 or more
  • Covers multi industry sectors
