DLUHC has launched a formal Expression of Interest process that is open to all Mayoral Combined Authorities, or Upper Tier Local Authorities where they do not exist, and Freeports, in England. Every area is welcome to apply, and we have been discussing potential zones with many areas across England.

Discussions are not confirmation that any particular place would be designated as an Investment Zone. The EOI closed on 14 October 2022 and we will make an announcement in due course once we have received and assessed all bids.
