Local Enterprise Partnerships: A Great Resource

Lorna Gibbons. local economic evidence coordinator of The South West Observatory publishes a great blog on local enterprise partnerships ("LEP") called Economic Development.

Particularly useful is her post of 7 June 2011 on BIS LEP Contact Information. This gives names, phone numbers, email addresses and areas of every contact in every LEP in the kingdom. This supplements another great post the previous day "Everything you need to know about each LEP .... contact and priorities where available".

Here's a sample entry for Leeds City Region, my local LEP:

Alternative contact lcr@leedscityregion.gov.uk or calling the Leeds City Region Secretariat on 0113 2474227.

Board members:

Key Objectives for the LEP – an Integrated Strategy and Investment Plan
The LEP Board considered a report on integrating Leeds City Region existing strategies to produce a single streamlined strategy and investment plan to help guide the activity of both the LEP and Leaders Boards effectively. Each Board would in turn produce a Strategic Delivery Plan.
This approach will ensure that both Boards have a single, clear focal point of reference in terms of the Partnership’s vision and mission objectives.
The draft will be published for consultation and presented at the LEP Summit on the 9th September 2011."
Altogether it's great stuff.
