D2N2 brought local partners together to make coordinated responses to the two stages of Government consultation on the development of the 2014-2020 Assisted Areas map.
The European Commission has agreed a map that provides for a population coverage of 594,362 within D2N2, which represents 125% of our previous population coverage of 474,804.
The map has been remodelled to focus on areas of business need and opportunity and assisted area status has been extended to coverage within more areas of D2N2.
