Local Enterprise Partnerships

On 28 October Government announced 24 partnerships that are now ready to move forward and establish their local enterprise partnership boards. Further partnerships will be taken forward after resubmission of proposals. Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are joint local authority-business bodies which will replace Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) in order to promote local economic development.
