Last applications for growth programme

Time is running out to apply for funding from Northumberland’s Business Growth programme.

Arch, The Northumberland Development Company, in conjunction with the county council, was awarded £11.75million from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund to deliver an initiative that would encourage the creation of new sustainable jobs, the growth of skills and talent and the acceleration of inward investment.

So far, over 80 of the county’s businesses in sectors such as marine, oil and gas, food and drink and engineering have benefited from more than £6.43million of funding.

Those wanting to take advantage of the remaining funds available to invest in projects must submit an application by the end of Sunday.
