Along with other LEPs across England, Coast to Capital has a crucial role to play in helping to support economic recovery and new business realities. As a region which has always made a significant net contribution to national prosperity, Coast to Capital focusses on the most important opportunities to deliver our vision of building back smarter, stronger and greener – working with our partners to make a difference to people and places and ensuring that our region is a fantastic place to live, grow and succeed.
Government has confirmed the future value and role that Coast to Capital will play in supporting economic growth across the region. In line with government’s commitment, the LEP will continue to deliver key services and programmes that work towards delivering business support, careers education, economic development programmes, investment and multidisciplinary consultancy services. All of these together will help our region’s economic strength and growth.
We are embedding a strong, independent, and diverse local business voice in regional decision making by analysing our key sectors and developing economic plans in partnership with local leaders.
We are committed to supporting our upper tier local authorities with securing devolution deals where appropriate. As with all public sector organisations we have had to adapt to declining public funding and are taking positive steps to develop new commercial sources of income to ensure that we can continue to deliver even better services for our region. Our delivery plan refresh will be published later this year and this will give more detail on our business development plans.
