Hub > Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership's Profile
LLEP encompasses the local authority areas of Blaby, Charnwood, Harborough, Hinckley and Bosworth, Leicester, Melton, North West Leicestershire and Oadby and Wigston.
In September 2010 the local authorities, business community, universities and other partners agreed to form the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP). The LLEP was then approved by HM Government in October 2010. The LLEP provides a great opportunity for local government, the business community and other partners to come together and lead economic development and regeneration activities to drive forward economic growth. The LLEP aims to make Leicester and Leicestershire a destination of choice by promoting the area as a place to do business, work and live. The LLEP will provide strategic leadership to deliver sustainable economic growth through investment in enterprise and innovation, employment and skills and infrastructure including transport and housing.
