Regulation for Growth

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire LEP has been chosen by the Better Regulation Delivery Office to pilot a Better Business for All initiative called Regulation for Growth. This initiative brings together all national and local regulators in conjunction with businesses to support the growth and prosperity of Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.

Through our continued engagement with both regulators (operating at national and local level) and businesses we have been working to improve regulation in a number of ways. We have

– established a clear and effective relationship between regulators and business supported by our Regulatory Charter.
– encouraged regulators to deliver their regulation in more innovative ways through promoting greater communication between them so as to spread best practices and change the culture in their approach.
– improved the quality, accessibility and consistency of communicated regulatory advice and tools for businesses across our LEP.

Regulators working with business support organisations, such as the Chambers of Commerce and Federation of Small Businesses, as well as businesses themselves, helped to drive the success of this project. For more information, please contact
