Kent and Medway Engineering Design, Growth and Enterprise (EDGE Hub)

Canterbury Christ Church University will develop a transformative 3,588m2 teaching and research centre with satellite facilities at the Discovery Park (Dover), Canterbury Christ Church’s Medway Campus and other parts of Kent.

Award of additional LGF funding

The LGF COVID-19 response fund was established to support those existing LGF projects which were experiencing a funding gap due to cost increases or loss of local funding sources as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new LGF project pipeline, consisting of existing LGF projects, was agreed by the Strategic Board in December 2020 and will be used as the basis for awarding all currently unallocated LGF funding.

This project was included on the new LGF project pipeline and the award of an additional £0.901m LGF was approved by Accountability Board Minutes 10 September 2021
