Local Industrial Strategy Stakeholder Event (Warrington)
Developing ambitious Local Industrial Strategies is central to delivering the National Industrial Strategy’s vision to build an economy fit for the future, with prosperous communities across the United Kingdom, and to drive up productivity.
Cheshire and Warrington LEP is one of the early leaders in developing a Local Industrial Strategy and has been working to build up a robust evidence base which demonstrates the distinctive strengths of our area, and which highlights potential issues that may hinder our growth aspirations.
The LEP is keen to engage with businesses and other key stakeholders to test that evidence and the initial insights and conclusions that it is drawing from it.
Sessions will follow a similar format at each venue and will include an in-depth presentation on the evidence and insights work by our consultants Metro Dynamics, and an interactive session where attendees can discuss what they’ve heard, tell us if we’ve missed anything important and give their views on what it might mean for the Cheshire and Warrington economy.
Please note that numbers for each event are limited, so do book early. Attendance is FREE. If for some reason you book but can no longer attend a session, please do let us know so that we can offer your place to someone else.
Refreshments and a buffet lunch will be served on arrival at 12.00 noon. The event will start at 1pm.
