Growing places, growing Staffordshire

Dunston Business Village

Growing our economy and creating more better paid jobs for people has been a priority for us for many years now and one that will continue into 2020 and beyond. And, as the year draws to an end and we continue to see near full employment here in the county we have lots to be happy about.

Calling Staffordshire businesses! Local companies might be interested in the Growing Places Fund, which provides interest-free loans to support the growth of projects in the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership area.

The fund is now in its 14th round and over the years has seen both large and small companies benefit. Feedback from those who have benefitted from the fund has also been hugely positive. One such project supported by the fund was the award-winning Dunston Business Village, which is now not only completely occupied but also has a long waiting list. This just goes to show once again that Staffordshire remains an attractive place for companies all over the UK.

There’s further details at www.stokestaffslep.org.uk, just click on the Enterprise Support section. Alternatively, you can call 01785 277706. But make sure you get your applications for this round submitted before the closing date on Friday 31 January.
