Local enterprise partnerships
Local Enterprise Partnerships are private sector-led partnerships between business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and community and voluntary organisations. There are 39 LEPs in England. They play a central role in deciding local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth and create local jobs.
D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)
D2N2 is the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. D2N2, established in 2010, is one of the largest LEPs in England, covering an area with a population of more than two million people and with an economic output of over £41.2 billion. You can read more about the D2N2 LEP and its strategic priorities.
D2N2’s target is to support the creation of 55,000 new jobs in D2N2 by 2023; the majority of which will be in the private sector. Its vision is of a more prosperous, better connected, and increasingly resilient and competitive economy and its purpose is to support and encourage economic growth in the D2N2 region. It does this via the development of shared partnership priorities and the deployment of resources for key strategic projects via its Growth Deals with Government, bringing Local Growth Fund resources to the area. Further details and examples of projects supported by the D2N2 LEP are available.
