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.
We set up a Programme Group to oversee the development of our LIS. The group is leading the development of an evidenced-based understanding of how our local economy works and the specific opportunities it presents for UK productivity, beyond our departure from the European Union.
