Economic Vision

The LEP’s Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) set out the economic priorities for the LEP area, and formed the basis for its Growth Deal’s to Government. The LEP secured over £110 million via its Growth Deals to support vital projects, from funding for the Ely Southern Bypass through to investment into a new Highways Academy at the West Anglia Training Association (WATA)

The SEP utilised evidence already gathered by previous studies and research, and coupled it with the feedback from local businesses to create our economic strategy and investment plan. Throughout the process the team worked with partners and experts to focus on:

  • Identifying our key economic priorities and actions that will unlock our growth potential
  • Pinpointing opportunities for economic growth
  • Ascertaining the barriers to economic growth and ways of tackling them
  • Identifying the priority actions, projects and investments that will unlock growth
  • Campaign on major issues, actions and investments that will unlock our growth potential
