Local Enterprise Partnership

What does the LEP do?

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.
