THE Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership is urging firms to come forward and apply for funding.

The LEP covers an area including West Sussex, and exists to attract government funding and filter it to local firms.

It is now asking businesses in its catchment area to apply for its 
Growing Places fund, to inject cash into projects 
that have stalled 
because of a lack of investment.

It has already allocated more than £14m, including £6m for a business park development in Bognor Regis.
