£10 million boost for Plymouth projects

We’ve got some pretty strong signals that up to £10 million is on the way to help exciting Plymouth construction projects off the ground.

The Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership has been allocated over £35 million from the Government’s Getting Building Fund to spend on projects ready to go and £10 million of that is within sight for key Plymouth projects. The projects chosen will support employment, regeneration, skills and innovation and play an important part of the city’s economic recovery programme, Resurgam.

Protecting and creating over 2,500 construction jobs

Big building projects that will make a big difference to thousands of families and businesses in Plymouth are to get underway as part of the city’s Resurgam plan to jump-start Plymouth’s economy.

It’s full steam ahead for major schemes designed to help us all get around the city easily, regenerate run down areas, create new business space as well as new homes and get the construction industry back to work. The first part of the programme is worth £140.3 million but importantly creates 2,519 construction jobs and 244 permanent jobs.
