WLEP 1st draft ESIF document submitted

Worcestershire LEP’s First Draft European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Strategy was submitted to Government on 7 October 2013.  It represented a real collaborative effort by many LEP partners and stakeholders throughout this fast paced process.

The document will be the LEP’s point of reference for the next stage of detailed work while we await the Government’s formal response in early November.

We are now challenged to shape the stand alone Strategic Economic Plan as a successor to the current WLEP Business Plan and to spearhead the conversion of our headline ambitions into a robust delivery of programmes and projects.

We still have a lot to do but we’ve made a good start in setting out Worcestershire’s stall!
