    • Agenda• Strategy for Growth - Place• Growing Places Fund• Current activity• Future pipeline
    • Strategy for GrowthIn order for enterprise and international trade to thrive we need the right business environment and the right infrastructure There are four key areas where consultation with business has told us we need to focus our attention:• Digital connectivity• Business and employment locations & planning• Supporting infrastructure and transport• Business and investment finance
    • Place• Place = creating the right conditions for growth• Best possible physical and fiscal conditions• Common challenges – Planning, access to Finance, Infrastructure, availability/access to suitable Land• Underpins key strands – Enterprise & Internationalisation
    • Growing Places FundThe Growing Places Fund is a Government programme to provide funding to unlock stalled infrastructure and building projects, in order to create economic growthThe funding is managed by Coast to Capital and allocated to projects following agreed criteriaCentral government have allocated Coast to Capital £23 millionCapital is provided on a loan basis to ensure that the fund can be recycled and used on further, future projects
    •• The Government have delegated Coast to Capital £23m of Growing Places Funding. This will be used as catalytic funding to bring forward infrastructure and other projects which are well developed, conceptually, but which are blocked from getting started. The Coast to Capital Growing Places funds will be used to unlock these projects and the corresponding investment from other partners• Coast to Capital is seeking projects that have been stalled, due to the lack of investment, to come forward. The Board is calling both public and private sectors to take this opportunity to consider the schemes they may have on their books• The Coast to Capital Board is looking for projects that will be ready to implement in the short term and will create or unlock job creation
    • Current Activity To date the board has allocated £14m loan funding to 5 projectsA total value in excess of £173m with potential to provide over 2000 jobs
    • Future Pipeline Coast to Capital is seeking further investment opportunities to unlock infrastructure & developmentPublished criteria for project investment:• Able to contribute to Coast to Capital’s strategic goals for employment growth• In the Coast to Capital area• Unable to go ahead without investment – Growing Places Fund• Ready to commence quickly• Able to repay with a clear mechanism• In need of £250,000 or more• Local Area Partnership aware• Environmentally sustainable
    • Application/ Proposal• Project Proposal Summary –• Permanent (& temporary) jobs created by completed scheme• Background and current status of project• Description of completed project (notes on operation)• Fit with criteria• Loan amount requested• Information received• Risks and concerns – and mitigation• Opportunities and benefits• Construction risk• Security• Key issues (summary)
    • Response• Review project submissions & score against GPF criteria• Not accepted, or potential recognised but not for GPF (Cat 1)• Potential for GPF future funding (Cat 2)• Potential for early GPF support (Cat 3)• Project appraisals – Project financial profile – GPF return projections – Output profile – Delivery risk assessment• Investment recommendations – Agree level of investment & prepare Summary of Key Terms
    • Call to Action We need your help to allocate remaining funds to catalytic projectsContinuous dialogue process to build pipeline for future projects Please promote Growing Places Fund opportunities to your members, partners, stakeholders and contacts
    • FAQs• Growing Places is a revolving fund and therefore we are not entering into bid rounds• The Board is hoping to consider prospective projects towards the end of 2012• Assessment of projects will include looking at the amount of match funding that will be available alongside the Coast to Capital investment and also how much investment will be unlocked by the project. However, there is no set threshold for match funding• Area Partnerships will be encouraging businesses and organisations to put forward possible projects, rather than submitting proposals themselves

    • Alex WilliamsonCoast to Capital – BoardMemberDigital Connectivity
    • Strategy for GrowthPlace and infrastructureIn order for enterprise and business internationalisation to thrive,we need the right business environment and the right infrastructure.There are four key areas where consultation with business has toldus we need to focus our attention:• Digital connectivity• Business and employment locations and planning• Supporting infrastructure and transport• Business and investment finance
    • Digital ConnectivityHigh speed, high capacity, reliable digital connections are an essentialprerequisite for the entrepreneurial, global business economy we aretrying to encourage. Unless top quality digital connection is accessible tobusiness, new businesses will not be encouraged, business growth andinternationalisation will be stifled and the international reputation of thearea as a good place to do business will be damaged.The current focus is on broadband improvements, and businesses havetold us that getting next generation infrastructure in place as quickly aspossible must be a top priority. Over the next 20 years, Coast to Capital willalso need to make sure that further developments in business connectivityare given a high priority, and are implemented early in our area. Themore we succeed in creating a reputation for high growth, internationalbusiness, the more we will attract emerging technology to our area for thebenefit of all businesses.
