Broadband investment for Hinckley and Bosworth
Leicestershire County Council has announced plans to investment millions of pounds into the delivery of improved infrastructure that will support job creation and businesses in the towns of Hinckley and Bosworth.

The Hinckley Times reports a major investment of £107 million has been secured by the council, with the funding to include more than £37 million that is to be funnelled into the provision of better broadband connectivity for the area.

Blake Pain, Cabinet Member for Economic Development at Leicestershire County Council, commented that the new growth plan set forth by the local authority will touch on all areas of infrastructure, from transport to office space, broadband to business grants.

"These investments will make the county more attractive to investors, help businesses become more competitive and create more and better jobs for local people," he said.

It is hoped the delivery of this major funding boost for the area will help to reduce demand on public services in the years ahead, ensuring the investment makes appropriate sense to both the taxpayer and local industry.
