The project received £2.34 million from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, delivered in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal.
This represents a £1 billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region. Office fit-out at the Guildhall is supported by investment from the Government’s Getting Building Fund, allocated by York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
A report taken to Executive in February 2019 approved the delivery of the scheme's budget.
