Fitted Rigging House

The Fitted rigging House Project (FRH) converts a large, Grade 1, former industrial building into office and public benefit spaces initially providing a base for 3 organisations employing over 350 people and freeing up space to create a postgraduate study facility elsewhere onsite for the University of Kent’s Business School.

Growing Places Fund

The Growing Places Fund (GPF) was established by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (formerly the Department for Communities and Local Government) and the Department for Transport (DfT) in 2011. The aim of this funding is to unlock economic growth, create jobs and ‘kick-start’ house building at stalled development sites.

Through the GPF Round 1 awards, a total of £48.705m GPF was awarded to 13 capital infrastructure projects across the LEP area.
