I met with the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP on 24 March to sign the City Deal, and we have now agreed a Growth Deal with Coventry and Warwickshire LEP.

The deal has secured £74m from the Government's Local Growth Fund to support economic growth in the area – with nearly £14m of new funding confirmed for 2015/16. This includes projects such as a new grow-on space for innovative businesses at Ansty Park near Rugby.
