In December 2018, Government announced the entire country will benefit from Local Industrial Strategies (LISs). Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) were asked to lead this process on behalf of local areas through negotiation with Government. Coast to Capital is part of the Wave 3 group of LEPs to produce a LIS. All LISs are set to be published by March 2020.
We have set up a Programme Group to oversee the development of the LIS. The group is leading the development of an evidenced-based understanding of how the regional economy works and the specific opportunities that it presents for UK productivity, beyond our departure from the European Union.
The group meets fortnightly and comprises of senior members from Coast to Capital and Local Authority partners. The LIS programme is being managed by our Chief Executive, Jonathan Sharrock, who has been appointed the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) by the Coast to Capital Board.
Please see the related resources section for a selection of Programme Group documents.
