Decision details

Norfolk Growth Prospectus/New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (NALEP) Submission to Government

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To update Members on the progress of the Strategic Economic Plan.

Decision:

That authority be delegated to the Chief Executive in consultation with the Leader of the Council and the Executive Member for Assets & Strategic Development to indicate the District Council’s support for the submission version of the New Anglia Strategic Economic Plan

Reasons for the decision:

The document was evolving to reflect the priorities of the District within the wider context of the new Anglia Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP).  A fully supported Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) would enable the New Anglia LEP to engage with the Government in a positive way to achieve the maximum funding for the New Anglia LEP.

Alternative options considered:

  1. Authority be delegated to the Chief Executive in consultation with the Leader of the Council and the Executive Member for Assets & Strategic Development to indicate the District Council’s support for the submission version of the New Anglia Strategic Economic Plan.

 

  1. Do nothing.  Breckland Council would therefore not be supporting the Strategic Economic Plan, and would be unlikely to have access to Norfolk and Suffolk’s share of the £2.2bn Local Growth Fund (LGF) or the £81m notional allocation of EU strategic investment funds.
