Herts LEP is one of 38 Local Enterprise Partnerships across the country tasked by Government to accelerate economic growth. First formed in 2011, LEPs are partnerships between local authorities and businesses and play a central role in determining local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive growth and the creation of local jobs. The LEP brings together key stakeholders to boost local economic growth and job creation.
LEPs are responsible for producing a Strategic Economic Plan for their area, identifying barriers and solutions to growth and working with local partners to improve their business environment. The LEP’s vision is to accelerate business-led economic growth in Hertfordshire, and for Hertfordshire to become a world-leading economy.
