Decision details

Strategic Economic Plan for the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

 

To consider and endorse the Strategic Economic Plan for the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership

Decision:

RESOLVED  that the New Anglia Economic Strategy be approved

Reasons for the decision:

The Strategy had been based on a strong evidence base and its direction addressed issues which were of importance to Breckland.  The coordinated approach set out by the Strategy was likely to have more success as resolution of these economic issues required a comprehensive approach across all sectors.  This had been recognised by Government and funding agencies and a strong coordinated approach across New Anglia would assist in seeking resources.  Current events and the advent of the Government’s Industrial Strategy would mean that it was important that New Anglia had a comprehensive Strategy in place as soon as possible so moving forward on the basis of the draft document was a sensible way to speed up the process.

Alternative options considered:

·         To approve the Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk

·         Decline to approve the Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk
