Increased infrastructure funding announced for Aylesbury constituency

David recently received a letter from Buckinghamshire Thames Valley Local Enterprise Partnership (BTVLEP), announcing  several projects  which will benefit the Aylesbury constituency. 

BTVLEP announced that with the aid of the Buckinghamshire MPs they have secured £20.48 million in the most recent round of Local Growth Funding. The investment, per-capita is the best in the country and is a strong testament to the work of the BTVLEP.

The three projects to be supported by the funding will be:

The Stoke Mandeville Relief Road: This piece of infrastructure will help maintain the main road link between Aylesbury and High Wycombe following the arrival of HS2. This road will also be important in supporting the development of Aylesbury's Garden Town proposal.

The University of Buckingham's new centre for Economics, Innovation and Entrepreneurship: A new centre for Economics, Innovation and Entrepreneurship supported and funded by both the Institute of Economic Affairs and Lord Vinson. This centre will be at the heart of the campus and is expected to welcome students as early as 2018.

The Silverstone Enterprise Zone Innovation Centre: The Enterprise Zone at Silverstone is the fastest developing of the new Enterprise Zone sites in England. The proposed new innovation centre will support the growth of high performance engineering technology and will provide and important growth between education and business.
