Date: 24/7/2013

The Government's Response to Lord Heseltine's review, confirmed their commitment to negotiating a Growth Deal with every Local Enterprise Partnership, building on the success of City Deals, and ensuring that no place gets left behind.Through Growth Deals, Local Enterprise Partnerships can seek freedoms, flexibilities and influence over resources from Government; and a share of the new Local Growth Fund to target their identified growth priorities.

Alongside the Local Growth Fund, every Local Enterprise Partnership is being given responsibility for drawing up investment plans for over £5 billion of European Structural and Investment Funds for England for the period 2014-2020.Local Enterprise Partnerships have asked for clarity, transparency and certainty on Growth Deal negotiations. This guidance document sets out how the process will work.

In addition, the Government will work with Local Enterprise Partnerships over the summer to co-design more detail and will add to this guidance in September.
