Our team have a wide range of expertise and experience and work alongside our public and private board to create and retain jobs in Kent.
Since forming, Locate in Kent has helped 1044 companies move to, set-up or expand in Kent, creating or retaining 65,966 jobs. Last year we helped 46 businesses commit to relocating or expanding in Kent, leading to the creation or retention of 3,042 jobs, with 678 as a result of investment from overseas.
We’re currently working with many more businesses and would like to talk to you about any project you may be considering.
In August 2016, Locate in Kent signed a new three year contract with Kent County Council (KCC) and Medway Council to promote Kent as a business location to attract new companies and to support the growth of existing business.
Following a successful bid to the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) by Kent County Council, Locate in Kent’s work has also been given a financial boost. The new money is in addition to the funding support it receives from KCC, Medway Council, Kent Developers Group, and private sector partners such as Cripps, the county’s largest law firm.
We help lighten the load when searching for a new location for a business and make the most of Kent’s connections with London, the South East, continental Europe and beyond.
At a time when the lack of affordable housing across the country is a hot topic, Ashford Borough Council has approved the provision of a further 190 homes through its Housing Revenue Account between 2018 and 2024.
Investments totalling around £100m are planned for the leisure sector in Ashford, complementing infrastructure investments that make it one of the most dynamic and aspirational locations in the South East.
OUR PART OF THE SOUTH EAST
Ideally located between London and the continent, the county’s range of transport options, with train links across Britain and into Europe, six ports, a strong road network and easy access to a number of international airports, is perfect for business.
