The Local Enterprise Partnership (or LEP) is a partnership between businesses, universities, the region’s councils and Combined Authority. Its role is to secure our region’s success by promoting an environment in which businesses thrive and communities grow in a sustainable way.
The LEP worked with the Combined Authority, government, and the business community to develop our region’s Local Industrial Strategy, which sets out our priorities to drive long-term growth in our economy.
The Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Board is made up of influential business leaders with valuable expertise in a range of industry sectors.
The LEP Board advises the West of England Joint Committee. The committee is the decision-making body for issues relating to the West of England Combined Authority. It decides which projects should funded and discusses the progress made by these projects at its public meetings.
