Leeds City Region Business Survey 2020

Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership has commissioned a business survey to gauge the views of businesses on a range of issues.

Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP) has commissioned a business survey to gauge the views of businesses on a range of issues.

The survey helps develop a better understanding of the climate in which businesses in Leeds City Region are operating, their confidence, investment experiences and intentions. The survey provides a clearer picture of the challenges facing businesses and insight into their growth ambitions in order to ensure the LEP’s support is targeted where it can be of most benefit to businesses and the economy.

Around 2,000 businesses in all sectors will be surveyed across the 10 local authorities that comprise Leeds City Region. The region includes the districts of Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.

BMG Research will be carrying out the survey on the LEP’s behalf. They will be contacting businesses by phone in January-March 2020. No organisation other than BMG will have access to the identity of organisations interviewed unless respondents volunteer that information. A summary of the survey results will be published on the LEP’s website when available.
