Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership was established as a company limited by guarantee in 2011 with a balanced membership of business, local authority and education leaders. We have made a commitment to transparency, accountability and the ability to make binding decisions.

We publish a Register of Interest for LEP Board members to protect the integrity of our decision-making and to ensure our stakeholders have confidence in us; details of conflicts of interest are also recorded in the minutes of the monthly Board Meeting.


We publish our Board Papers from our bi-monthly meetings (please refer to our Board Meeting page).


We also publish minutes from our Committees (please refer to our Committee Meetings page). 

We publish our most up to date Annual Reports and Abreviated accounts (please refer to our Annual Reports page). 


The Coast to Capital Articles of Association explains our purpose as well as our duties and responsibilities.

As a LEP we are required to adhere to our Assurance Framework, which we review on an annual basis. It is a Framework which sets out the governance and arrangements for the Local Growth Fund flowing to the LEP and includes how local growth funded schemes are selected and delivered to ensure maximum impact and best value for money. The Assurance Framework was approved by the Board in February 2018.


All Board members and staff sign up to our Code of Conduct and act in accordance with the ‘Seven Principles of Public Life’, known as the Nolan Principles.

Complaints Procedure – We take complaints very seriously and whilst we try to provide a good service, we know that sometimes things go wrong.


Whistleblowing Policy - This outlines the process for reporting any perceived wrongdoing within Coast to Capital which does not fall under the remit of our Complaints Policy or staff Grievance Policy. We are committed to creating a work environment with the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability and we take this policy very seriously.


Freedom of Information -  Coast to Capital welcomes all FOI requests our stakeholders may have, if you would like to submit an FOI request please go to our contact us page to submit your enquiry and a member of our team will be in contact.


Our Annual Conversation with Government took place on 11 December 2017 and our Governance Assurance Statement from this meeting can be found here.
