WE ARE A PARTNERSHIP FOR GROWTH

Welcome from the Chief Executive

Our draft Strategic Economic Plan went to the Government on 13th December, a week ahead of the deadline. It was the first of the 39 LEPs’ plans to arrive. Being slightly ahead of the game has given us time to launch a public consultation on the plan on 16th December, that runs for six weeks. We are only one of a few LEPs that will run a public consultation, which you can find at www.westofenglandlep.co.uk/plan.

Putting this plan together has been a new experience for everyone. We have a strong draft, and we have until February to finish the plan. We know our plan is not perfect, and we know the process of putting it together has felt rushed – and that’s why feedback is very welcome and will be taken seriously.  

I want to thank everyone who has already put time and energy into helping shape the draft plan and we look forward to seeing more ideas coming through the consultation.

Happy Christmas everybody.

Paul Wilson
