Solent LEP

The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) was formed after the Government gave local areas the opportunity to take control of their economic development. Generally, it consists of a partnership between local businesses and government and is a vital element for establishing local economic priorities and fostering jobs and economic growth.

This local enterprise partnership (LEP) is led by businesses and supported by three university parties, further education, three unitary authorities, eight district councils, one county council, and the voluntary and community sector – all working together to enhance the Solent’s economic prosperity.
