The Bedfordshire LNP, as lead in a federation of four LNPs, has been awarded a grant of £25,000 from DEFRA to develop a Natural Capital Investment Plan for the Oxford-Cambridge Growth Corridor.
The first step in the process took place recently with a workshop hosted by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP). Representatives from Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire were joined by government agencies and key infrastructure providers to identify existing data sets and discuss the way forward. The workshop was extremely productive and paved the way for this exciting initiative.
