North East Derbyshire Business Growth Fund

NEDDC has established the limited time pilot NED BGF to support businesses from areas within North East Derbyshire District that are not eligible for BNED LEADER Approach funding. Primarily, the eligible areas are the Parishes of Dronfield, Clay Cross and Tupton.

If you are unsure if your business falls within a BNED LEADER area or not, please use DEFRA’s Magic Maps tool, which will help you determine eligibility. A guide to using the Magic Maps tool can be downloaded below. If after using the tool you are still unsure, please contact a member of the team (details below).

The BGF will generally fund any business sector which we feel does not conflict with our Council Values (see our Corporate Plan for more details) and will provide between £500 and £4,000 towards project costs. At least 10% match funding will be expected from businesses (meaning total project cost should exceed £550) who will be selected based upon their ability to achieve economic growth and/or job creation within the District.

Grants can be for either capital or revenue expenditure; examples of the types of activity which can be funded could include:

• Extending and improving premises
• Employing an apprentice (but not core staff costs)
• Development of the business profile to boost trade (e.g. website development, advertising, artwork etc)
• Business growth items (equipment including ICT and machinery)
• Business start-up costs

Businesses requesting funding to address falling profits will not be eligible as it is unlikely that the modest grant would enable a long term change to their decline.

Expenditure such as feasibility studies, planning application costs and consultants fees would not create any direct growth output and is also therefore ineligible.

Although each application will be taken on its own merit it is felt that, in line with other similar grant programmes, it would be inappropriate to provide funding for stock and other consumables.
