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 how we can transform to a ‘Smart region’, tackling constraints and unlocking productive growth that enables us to remain globally competitive.

We’re encouraging IT and digital businesses, digital infrastructure providers, businesses competing in technology disrupted markets, local authorities transport teams, business support providers, Higher and Further Education and the Third Sector to get involved in shaping an ambitious and smart future for our region.
