The Local Industrial Strategy is a long-term plan for Leeds City Region, developed in partnership, to harness the strengths of our local area.
It is designed to boost productivity and transform the City Region, building on our strengths, improving people’s skills and helping businesses grow while tackling the climate emergency, so everyone can benefit from a strong economy.
Putting health at the heart of the region
By engaging with a wide and diverse range of individuals and organisations, we have identified clear priorities that will make up the Local Industrial Strategy, with healthy lives as one of its central pillars.
Our industrial heritage has created a legacy of health, social and environmental challenges that we need to overcome if the City Region is to reach its full potential. We believe enabling everyone to live healthy, active lives with greater earning power through better, more flexible skills and a fair, progressive employment market is one of the most effective ways of improving productivity across the City Region.
