Growth Plan

The Growth Plan sets out the Sheffield City Region’s plans to transform the local economy over the next decade.

At the heart of the plan is the creation of 70,000 new private sector jobs and 6,000 new businesses.

Since its completion in March 2014, the Growth Plan has achieved the following:

  • In July 2014 the LEP secured £320 million ‘Growth Deal’ from Government to start to deliver some parts of the plan
  • In December 2014 the City Region achieved a ‘Devolution Deal’ to give it more influence over its funding from Government
  • In January 2015 the LEP secured ‘Growth Deal 2’ which will mean a further £30 million
  • In June 2015 the City Region agreed its updated Assurance Framework
