Black Country Growth Deal

The Black Country Growth Deal ‘Made in the Black Country Sold Around the World’ will drive business growth, give people new skills, test new innovations, invest in transport infrastructure and regenerate key sites for housing and employment in the Black Country. The focus is on maximising the economic impact of growth opportunities from the automotive, aerospace and construction sectors, capitalising on the Black Country’s key strengths in advanced manufacturing. 

The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has obtained £211m through three rounds of growth deals for the period of 2015-2021. 

The Local Growth Deal is supporting over 100 projects which together have the capacity to deliver over 6,384 new jobs, 3,200 business assists, 12,000 learner assists (including apprenticeships), 2,536 new homes and over 39,244 square metres of new commercial floorspace by March 2025.
