Consultation process

Essex County Council, as the accountable body for the LEP, administers the Local Growth Fund money that has been allocated by Government to the South East LEP. KCC will receive £1 million annually as a grant from the Local Growth Fund: KCC will be responsible for assessing applications from individual businesses, issuing loan agreements, monitoring the loans and for reporting on performance to the LEP and to Government. This role is similar to the accountable body role that KCC currently performs in relation to the Regional Growth Fund programmes. When the loans are repaid, the funds accumulated can be recycled: the details are expected to be set out in the Grant Agreement between KCC and Essex County Council.
