Worcestershire LEP launches new Annual Report and Delivery Plan documents

The Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP) has today launched its new Annual Report and Delivery Plan documents.

Both documents form part of the requirements from Government to outline what the WLEP has achieved in the past financial year and the aims for the coming year. Both documents follow the 5 principles outlined in the WLEP’s Local Industrial Strategy of Ideas, People, Infrastructure, Place and Business Environment.

The Annual Report for 2019/20 provides readers with more information on the latest achievements that have taken place in Worcestershire’s business community, including major projects like the £71.71m Local Growth Fund and €68m EU Funding schemes. Some of the notable entries in this years report are Worcestershire Parkway rail-station, the 2020 Worcestershire Skills Show and the acceleration of BetaDen’s second cohort of tech businesses.

The Delivery Plan document has been designed to showcase the priorities for the coming financial year and the progress towards achieving the key objectives set out in the Strategic Economic Plan; increasing GVA by £2.9 billion, creating 25,000 jobs and enabling 21,500 new homes in the county by 2025. This includes information on the Government’s new Getting Building Fund, where Worcestershire LEP was successful in a bid for £12m to fund capital projects and programmes, which will help support jobs, skills and infrastructure in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

View both documents within the PDF readers below.
