Cornwall Local Enterprise Partnership given £4.3m
The body set up to boost economic growth in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has been given £4.3m to invest in infrastructure projects.
The money has been given to the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) by the government's Growing Places Fund.
The partnership said it would spend the cash on projects which would create new homes and jobs.
The partnership is locally replacing the work of the South West Regional Development Agency.
The LEP is a private and public sector partnership set up to encourage economic growth and job creation.
