Regen Fund 1

London Regeneration Fund


The fund aims to re-energise the capital’s high streets by embracing the city’s incredible talent for creativity and technological innovation.

The London Regeneration Fund will give local authorities, traders’ associations, workspace providers, and community groups the chance to come forward with exciting proposals that will help new and traditional places of work thrive in a rapidly changing city.

The London Regeneration Fund has being launched by the LEP following a successful bid to Government in January 2015 as part of the the Growth Deal for London. The Fund forms part of the LEP’s work to champion small and medium sized enterprises and builds on the Mayor’s longstanding belief that London’s high streets are great places to visit, live in and do business in.

The LEP is particularly keen to see proposals that create new open workspaces such as incubators, co-working spaces, maker-spaces and artists’ studios, or secure their long term affordability. He is also throwing down the gauntlet for ideas that intensify the diminishing stock of lower cost space in and around high streets and industrial areas, vital for new and growing businesses.

Who can apply?

The fund is open to proposals from boroughs, as well as sub and regional partnerships, town teams and business improvement districts, workspace providers, community groups and charities within London.

When are applications due?

The deadline for applications is October 2015 and successful applicants will be notified by January 2015.
