Businesses invited to have their say on Greater Lincolnshire’s Local Industrial Strategy

The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership is calling for businesses, public sector organisations, education providers, councils and third parties to submit their views on the evidence base used to develop the Local Industrial Strategy and help to shape the future of the Greater Lincolnshire Economy. 

The call has been made after the LEP was given the go-ahead by the Government to develop its own Local Industrial Strategy that will set out the LEP’s economic priorities through to 2030 and beyond. 

Ruth Carver, LEP Director, commented: “Our Local Industrial Strategy will transform the Greater Lincolnshire economy, so it is important we take on board the views of the area’s businesses and organisations.

“This call for evidence is a very important step in ensuring our Local Industrial Strategy matches the needs and priorities of our economy. The feedback we receive will help us to make a compelling case to the Government and private sector when attracting investment into the area.

“The Local Industrial Strategy is a long-term strategy to support our growing business sectors. We will also be refreshing our Strategic Economic Plan this year.” 

As part of the strategy’s development, the LEP has published two new documents:

• Greater Lincolnshire's Evolving Opportunities – this will highlight many compelling opportunities within the Greater Lincolnshire economy
• Local Industrial Strategy: Framework – a summary of the findings from the evidence-gathering phase 

Following stakeholder input, the LEP expects to produce the first version of the Local Industrial Strategy by the summer of 2019 for further discussion.

To have your say, you can submit your response directly through the LEP’s website here.

The LEP is encouraging stakeholders to review the documents before answering one or more of the questions.

The LEP will also be hosting several workshops across the area to seek further input. Information on these will be announced in due course.

The closing date for responses is 1st March 2019.
