Humber Local Enterprise Partnership
The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is a business-led partnership that works closely with government to promote and develop the natural economic area surrounding the Humber estuary, and provide strategic leadership for economic growth.
Our vision is for the Humber to become a national and international centre for renewable energy - capitalising on our natural assets, existing expertise and potential for development - and a centre for trade; exporting our goods and services around the world.
The priority is to create growth and jobs in the different sectors of renewable energy, ports and logistics, chemicals, engineering manufacturer, food, digital, visitor economy, while also contributing to a wider private sector renaissance in the Humber.
The LEP is made up of representatives from businesses as well as the University of Hull and the four Local Authorities in the Humber area - Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, North Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Council.
In working together with stakeholders we are working to attract new investment, generating growth from existing businesses, and directing resources where they will be most effectively utilised.
In December 2013 we signed the Hull and Humber City Deal which gave us Freedoms and flexibilities in business support, employment and skills and advanced development to help grow the region.
We run and contribute events that relate to the growth sectors, skills and employment and business support as well as consultation events, and we take a stand to sector specific UK and European events.
