Seven leading local businesses have formed a Cornerstone Employer Group to support schools as part of the Hertfordshire Careers Hub.
The road improvements are key to accelerating the delivery of new employment space at Hertfordshire Innovation Quarter, as well as much-needed new homes as part of Hemel Garden Communities.
The plan will help accelerate economic recovery over the next 6-18 months and position Hertfordshire for growth in the years thereafter.
Business and public sector leaders came together to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on their sectors and plans to rebuild Hertfordshire's economy at our latest webinar with Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce.
The work will improve the remaining section of the route linking Stevenage and Ware, part-funded by a £20m Local Growth Fund investment from Hertfordshire LEP.
A group of experienced business mentors have been recruited to help SMEs across Hertfordshire to bounce back from the Coronavirus crisis.
The funding was secured via the ‘Crowdfund Hertfordshire: Small Business Innovation Fund’, part of Hertfordshire LEP’s £3.28m COVID-19 business support package.
This includes five major projects to be delivered in Hertfordshire, set to create over 1,500 jobs and unlock over 12,100 sq. m. commercial space.
The plan sets out how LEPs can aid local economic growth and recovery, focusing on skills, green investment, and targeted stimulus.
