Analysis and Plans

Delivery Plan

Our Delivery Plan is focused on enabling our vision for Cheshire and Warrington to be the most healthy, sustainable, inclusive and growing economy in the UK, and thereby making levelling up a reality. This is a tactical plan aligned to our strategy and aims to recognise the changing context within which we all live.

Local Industrial Strategy

Our Local Industrial Strategy aims to deliver sustainable economic growth and in doing so creating a more productive, resilient and inclusive economy.

The development of the strategy was evidence-led with extensive collection and analysis of a range of economic data. The insights drawn from the data show that the Cheshire and Warrington economy remains strong, but that there are potential challenges to be addressed in achieving our long-term economic objectives. The Local Industrial Strategy identified the sub-region's core ‘super strengths’ in energy and clean growth, life sciences, manufacturing, logistics and distribution and finance and business services.

Annual Review 2021/22

Together, with our powerful partnerships across the private, public and voluntary sectors, we are building the most healthy, inclusive, sustainable and growing economy in the UK; with the support from our hardworking officer team and a wonderful Local Enterprise Partnership Board.

The past eighteen months have been especially challenging for the business community. 2021/22 started with the country still in Covid lockdown. The year ended with a cost-of-living crisis and the invasion of Ukraine. Our role as a LEP is to enable Cheshire and Warrington to navigate these storms, whilst we remain focused on the steps needed to deliver our vision.
