The PLACE authorities and private sector, put forward a proposal to Government to form a Pennine Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership. Whilst the proposal received positive feedback, it was felt that a Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership, supported by the three sub-areas of Lancashire (Pennine, Fylde Coast and Mid-Lancs) would be better placed to kick-start the economic recovery.
The PLACE Strategy Unit provides evidence to the Governments’ Select Committees when appropriate:
· Select Committee evidence – The New Local Enterprise Partnership
· Select Committee evidence – Inquiry into Regeneration
The PLACE Strategy Unit also provides a Quarterly Intelligence Report which is available on this website.
