Government has tasked Local Enterprise Partnerships to develop Local Industrial Strategies, with the aim of addressing the productivity challenge by identifying seeking long term priorities for funding and growth. We want to develop priorities that recognise our distinctive places and propel growth that is good, good for people, good for the planet and good for business.


Our Local Industrial Strategy will be built by the region through a ground up, partnership led approach, building regional priorities that every local place can engage with and benefit from.

This workshop will refine Local Industrial Strategy priorities and outline interventions by investigating the role that anchor institutions take in place leadership, and how we can enable good growth by capitalising on this.

We’re encouraging representatives from Colleges, Universities, Network Rail, Emergency Services, the MOD, Health Trusts, Housing Associations, Councils, large businesses, utilities companies and third sector employers to attend and get involved in shaping an ambitious future for our region.
