SCR Investment Fund

What is ‘SCRIF’? 

The Sheffield City Region Investment Fund (SCRIF) is a framework of funding streams to deliver essential strategic infrastructure to increase economic growth and jobs in Sheffield City Region.

SCRIF brings a range of funding streams together into a single assessment and prioritisation approach determined at a city region level by elected leaders and the Local Enterprise Partnership.

SCRIF is a way for local authorities to deliver the economic schemes essential for future growth. While the primary objective of SCRIF is economic growth, this is balanced with a desire to ensure that the benefits of the programme are reasonably distributed across SCR.

Funding streams for other priorities such as social inclusion, the environment and safety and security are not affected by SCRIF.

Initial prioritised list of schemes

On 26th July 2013, the Sheffield City Region Local Transport Body (LTB) published an initial prioritised list of schemes which will have the biggest impact on jobs and economic growth in Sheffield City Region over the next decade.  The development schemes on the list have been rigorously assessed on their likely impact on economic growth and jobs for the area.

The list was submitted to Government’s Department for Transport (DfT) on 31 July.

The LTB will be further analysing the projects on the list to ensure that the impact of investment decisions are spread across the Sheffield City Region, which covers Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Bolsover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire Dales, Doncaster, North East Derbyshire, Rotherham and Sheffield.

The schemes submitted to DfT can be found here:
