Following extensive consultation throughout the summer, involving input from hundreds of people across the City Region, as well and national and international experts, the LEP has identified key priorities for the Local Industrial Strategy, with healthy lives at its heart.
Roger Marsh OBE, chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership and the NP11, said: “The Local Industrial Strategy is an ambitious plan to improve productivity and support businesses and skills across the City Region. Working in partnership across the region and beyond, we have identified the top priorities the Local Industrial Strategy will address, with a focus on healthy lives for all. Good health is the cornerstone of productivity and will be a key driver in promoting productivity, wellbeing and growth.
“We are in the process of developing these draft priorities into the final Local Industrial Strategy and are very keen to hear from individuals, businesses and other parties. I would urge everyone with a view on to give feedback through our online survey.”
The Local Industrial Strategy is an ambitious, long-term plan for Leeds City Region, designed to boost productivity, build on the region’s strengths, improve people’s skills and help businesses grow while tackling the climate emergency, so all communities can prosper and benefit from a strong economy.
