On Monday, March 31, 2014, the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership submitted its ambitious plan to deliver a £2.4bn business investment programme across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, to create 55,000 jobs by 2023.

The Strategic Economic Plan final submission was delivered to Government following feedback from Whitehall and consultation with business and stakeholders.

This new in-depth document built on the initial strategy - D2N2, the UK’s Most Inspirational Postcode – launched in July 2013.

The submission made a compelling case to devolve Government funding from the Single Local Growth Fund - which had been allocated £10billion over five years between the 39 Local Enterprise Partnerships across England – to the D2N2 area, to deliver its ambitious plans for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

The amount of funding received would be combined with local funding from the public and private sector, and the 250million euros of EU funding already allocated to D2N2 (for 2014 to 2020). This would drive the plans forward and create tens of thousands of jobs, raise skills and support companies to grow and prosper.
