Harborough Grow on Centre
Harborough District Council provided up to £3,620,612 to fund the Harborough Grow on Centre (HGOC) project with £3,282,500 of the funding coming from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and £987,833 from the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP).
This project saw the development of a new commercial building, providing office space for businesses looking to grow and move into larger accommodation in the district. The Grow on Centre project is expected to create around 230 jobs and bring £20million into the local economy over the next five years.
The HGOC building, located at Compass Point Business Park in Market Harborough, is built to high environmental standards [BREEAM Excellent]. Office suites are available, ranging from 1,000-3,000 square feet with flexibility to meet business demand. The HGOC follows the success of the Harborough Innovation Centre, which Harborough District Council developed and opened in 2011, to provide office space for start-up and new businesses.
