LEP Question Time invites questions from the public
LEP Question Time on 6 June gives opportunity for people in the region to #AsktheLEP questions.
17 May 2019
The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is giving businesses and members of the public the opportunity to quiz LEP Board members at a public LEP Question Time session on 6 June.
People with a burning question about how the work of the LEP affects them and benefits the region – whether its work to secure Channel 4’s move to the region, or how business can benefit from the LEP grants and support, or how investment through the LEP Growth Deal is supporting projects across the region – can submit questions in various ways:
The LEP is asking the public to submit questions by:
- using the hashtag #AsktheLEP on Twitter;
- emailing the LEP firstname.lastname@example.org
- submitting questions through the online engagement hub westyorks-ca.gov.uk/questiontime
- Writing to the freepost address: Freepost, Consultation Team (WYCA)
Questions should be submitted by 31 May.
The LEP board will respond to as many questions as possible at the LEP Question Time session on 6 June. All questions will receive a direct response from the LEP after the meeting and all questions and answers will be published on the LEP website.
Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, said: “Our ambition is to be the most transparent LEP in the country and an important part of that pledge is developing a two way conversation with the people in our region.
“All questions are welcome – whether you’ve never heard of the LEP and want to know what we do, or if you’ve heard about some of the projects we’ve been involved in and want more information about something specific. We are committed to answering all questions we receive, either at the meeting itself or afterwards via our website.
“We have a responsibility to be accountable to the public and the Question Time session on 6 June offers a great opportunity for the people that we serve to put questions to us about how we’re working to make the region an even better place for everyone.”
The LEP works with businesses and public and private sector partners to benefit everyone who lives, works and does business in the region. It works across the Leeds City Region which is made up of: Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York.
