A decade of delivery
The unique way the LEP is set up – as a partnership between the triple helix of the business community, public sector and academia – means we have been able to break through barriers to growth, target investment and stimulate economic development and jobs.
The figures – which include those for Skylon Park, the Hereford Enterprise Zone – speak for themselves.
We have helped direct nearly £145 million of investment into the region in the past ten years and attracted more than £200 million in match funding.
Our work will create 18,230 jobs, support in excess of 15,000 learners to develop their skills and see £31 million invested in pioneering innovation projects.
Marches Growth Hub – has helped 52,295 businesses since it was launched in 2015.
The last ten years have truly been a Decade of Delivery for the LEP.
