£15 million of Government cash is being sought by East Anglia to pilot a rural growth network with the possibility of creating 700 new jobs.


Exciting news for rural enterprise has come to light in the form of a bid which has been submitted by the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The bid is to set up a network of 14 enterprise hubs based on under-used business parks, brownfield sites and sites with the potential for businesses in local communities. 

The sites being earmarked are at Stanton, Brandon, Harleston, Fakenham, Swaffham, North Walsham, Aylesham, Downham Market, Framlingham, Attleborough, Brantham, Clare/Glemsford and Eye.

The bid is backed by 13 local authorities in Suffolk and Norfolk and if successful could entice a lot of new companies to establish themselves in the area creating a whole raft of new jobs.


There is also potential to unlock further funding to specifically help small businesses - good news for local enterprises.
