I am pleased to share an update of the support that both the Coast to Capital LEP and Growth Hub team are providing to businesses in response to COVID.
We have recently launched our Business Recovery Insights Survey to help strengthen our understanding of the current economic landscape, alongside the continued provision of our Business Recovery Support Sessions. The full update can be read in the attached document.
We are delighted to be working closely with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy to agree a ‘Getting Building Fund’ investment of £19.2 million for the Coast to Capital area. The fund has been set up to invest in local infrastructure projects to drive economic growth in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
Coast to Capital Chair Appointment
As you may already be aware, our Chair Tim Wates will be stepping down at the end of this month. Therefore we are delighted to announce that Julie Kapsalis will be taking on the new position from August. Julie has held the position of Vice Chair for the past year and has been on the Coast to Capital Board for over six years during which time she served as the Chair of the Investment Committee and Diversity Champion.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Richard Butcher via email.
