Everything you need to know about each LEP


There is so much information about LEPs it is hard to know if you are looking at the most recent information.  Here I aim to have collected the best sources for each LEP.

If you have anything to add/amend please let me know via twitter @lornagibbons or
lorna_gibbons@hotmail.com

By way of introduction to LEPs I suggest you read this Commons Library Standard Note 
http://www.parliament.uk/briefing-papers/SN05651 and have a look at the DCLG business plan (s.3) on LEPs http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/corporate/pdf/2154390.pdf. The LEP Network website is very useful http://www.lepnetwork.org.uk/ I would recommend signing up to their newsletters.

Over the next couple of months I would suggest these areas would be of interest:

a) City Deals for example the Core Cities by July with more to follow soon after eg
http://www.communities.gov.uk/statements/corporate/manchestercitydeal
b) Devolving local major transport schemes 
http://www.dft.gov.uk/consultations/dft-2012-04 - Government response expected in July
c) LEPs and EU funding 2014-2020 following a BIS Informal consultation on the future delivery of EU Structural Funds, Rural Development Fund and Maritime and Fisheries Fund in England from 2014 to 2020 - this may include LEPs...
http://www.bis.gov.uk/policies/economic-development/european-structural-and-cohesion-funds 

I'm also involved in a National LEP Cross-Country Research Project. More information here:
http://harrisresearch.co.uk/?p=607

Current best practice would suggest LEPs may want to look towards these areas:

a) planning charter
b) business / regulator charter
c) encouraging apprenticeships
d) encouraging entrepreneurship in young people
e) delegated to LEPs or groups of LEPs major transport funding
f) working with central government to deliver some EU priorities 2014-2020 (matched centrally)
g) improved access to finance
h) where appropriate how LEPs can best work with the Military
i) HMRC to offer a programme of support via LEPs http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/bst/

Board Minutes

Mr Hollis (Deputy Chair) dismissed suggestions the LEP would not have enough cash to bring about major changes – pointing to the potential £700 million it believes it can raise through borrowing money on the back of the proposed enterprise zone in Birmingham city centre.  Under the Government's plans, enterprise zones will be encouraged to develop Tax Increment Financing Schemes, which allow councils to borrow against future business rates revenues.

Adrian requested comments on the efficacy of an Oxfordshire young people's survey. Simon Duffy requested any survey be a simple ranking list – action: sub group (SD, RK, RF) to investigate and report back. Sandra Higgs outlined the tools and activities currently available and under development from Berkshire and the plan for a dissemination event. Actions: Alison Hopkins will circulate the visit report. Sandra to provide a paper on recommendations for working with Berkshire LEP.
