Regeneration scheme in Pendle created 50 new jobs
3:13pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A REGENERATION scheme which town hall officials claim has created nearly 50 new jobs looks set to be given a £300,000 shot in the arm.
Last year £340,000 was used by the Gearing Up For Growth fund to help establish 23 new firms in Pendle and assist the expansion plans of 31 more.
Coun Paul White, economic development cabinet member, said: “It’s absolutely vital for Pendle’s economy that we continue to do all we can to help it grow.
“If we can continue with the Gearing up for Growth programme, we’ll be able to do yet more to create economic growth, help local companies thrive and create even more jobs.”
Another by-product of the scheme has been efforts to secure match-funding for expansion, of which £3million has been obtained to date.
