The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been created as a result of the Coalition Government’s White Paper on economic growth, ‘Realising Every Place’s Potential’.
The Government has stipulated that LEPs will be ‘business led’ but has not defined how this should be achieved, leaving it up to individual LEPs to determine how to put businesses in the driving seat. Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP has agreed to consult with businesses in order to determine the key strategic priorities over the next five years to ensure that these reflect the views of the private sector.
The LEP website www.cornwallandislesofscillylep.com provides the most up to date information including:

Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP Proposal
Our submission for a Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership is available here - Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership - Empowering Enterprise. This document exemplifies the spirit within which the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) invitation was made – a true partnership between the public and private sector. It also highlights the ingenuity, resilience and aspirations of our area, and how we feel that we can not only take forward economic development in our area, but also what we can offer to the wider UK and world economy. We are ambitious, and we know that we can build on our successes to make a difference to the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
