What does our LIS look like?
The aim of the SSLEP Local Industrial Strategy is to set out a blueprint for driving economic growth and productivity in our area.
It is an important next step for the LEP and its partners, building on the Strategic Economic Plan update we published in April 2018. The LIS will be our pitch to Government for investment and will focus on the sectors and opportunities that will lead to the highest boost to productivity in growth.
Throughout last year, we worked closely with businesses, HE/FE and public sector leaders to understand conditions ‘on the ground’ in the region. This collaborative and iterative piece of work culminated in a draft consultation strategy in early 2020. Since then, the LEP has been responding to the challenges presented by Covid-19 and is developing a revised implementation plan in light of the current crisis.
An Executive Summary has been produced, which provides an overview of the LIS. You can read it here.
