Our Strategic Economic Plan outlines our joint vision to unlock the potential of the City Region, developing an economic powerhouse that will create jobs and prosperity.

Working together gives us the insights and benefits of both the public and private sectors.

Private sector knowledge and expertise from the LEP ensures that strategic, business-led economic growth is at the heart of what we do. It ensures that our projects are driven by the long-term needs of employers and the Leeds City Region economy.

Public sector accountability and oversight from the Combined Authority ensures that our investment decisions are taken transparently, and provides the robust governance structures for the region to take on devolved powers and funding from central government. The Combined Authority is also responsible for delivering large-scale transport and infrastructure projects, ensuring that we can better connect people, places and jobs.

This partnership between the private and public sectors ensures that all decisions made by the LEP Board are subject to the scrutiny and approval of a democratic body. Everything we do is approved, in public, at Combined Authority meetings
