Table 1 (copy attached) shows the distribution of 2690 ‘applications received’ by the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) and the 258 ‘successfully awarded investments or loans’ by Local Authority District from March 2017 to March 2018. Of the applications received, 286 were from outside of the Northern Powerhouse area, but could have been eligible if the applicants were willing to relocate to the area or conduct “significant business” there. Please note, the NPIF became operational in March 2017, so there is no data for the Fund before that date.
Table 2 (also in the attached) shows in £million the sums awarded to the eleven Northern Powerhouse LEPs as Growth Deals for the period 2015-2021. The full award came to £3,435.41m.
