We are considering the next stage of our response to the economic challenges that our region continues to face by working with partners to develop a pipeline of regional transformational projects. This will lead to Government bids for regional investment, providing access to the wide range of funding pots created by Ministers.
We are looking to develop a portfolio of 6-10 such projects that can form the centrepiece of our business plan for the year ahead. Our Build Back Stronger, Smarter and Greener document provides a useful overview of our region and the kinds of transformational projects that would help the region recover. With a strong pipeline of regional projects, we would work to attract investment from a wide range of sources. This is part of our wider strategy to diversify our business and ensure that the LEP can build a commercially sustainable model for future project development. A letter from our Chief Executive to stakeholders can be read here.
We know that collaboration with partners is key for our future success, if you would like to find out more, please contact us.
