Place & Infrastructure

York and North Yorkshire has thrived, and will thrive in future, because of the high quality of our towns and cities. Working together with our local authority partners and organisations, we will help to capitalise on the opportunities of our great places reshaping and refocussing them to be greener, fairer and stronger in the future.

Strategy

York & North Yorkshire LEP has delivered £145.9m of Local Growth Fund investment. Long-term, this could create 11,620 jobs and 5,965 new homes in York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding.

£26m of additional funding has been levered from £7.1m of Local Growth Fund investment, jobs have been protected and businesses given the opportunity to grow. Work is also estimated to have prevented future losses to the area’s tourism industry of around £4.1m per year.
