Growth Deals provide funds to Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) for projects that benefit the local area and economy. New Anglia LEP’s total Growth Deal with Government is worth £290.8m and is supporting a number of key local infrastructure projects in Suffolk. This includes a commitment of £5m for a Beccles relief road, a feasibility study on the options of a third river crossing in Lowestoft and £5m to support superfast broadband roll-out across the county.
