Our board

The LEP board brings together business and council leaders to oversee and make strategic decisions related to our Strategic Economic Plan

Role of the board

What does the board do?

This approach to partnership working provides the best of both worlds: private sector expertise on what businesses need to grow, and democratic accountability for public sector investment.

These partnerships enable us to realise the best economic outcomes for our region.
