GLOUCESTERSHIRE LOCAL INDUSTRIAL STRATEGY:
Following extensive engagement with Gloucestershire businesses and our partners in the public sector, and supported by an evidence base of nearly 300 submissions, we are pleased to share our draft Local Industrial Strategy.

We welcome the continued support from the Government, which will provide clarity on the role of LEPs going forward. It reinforces the benefits of a strong business voice in leading strategic economic policy and investments. GFirst LEP has completed a Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) refresh and will produce an ambitious Local Industrial Strategy. The LEP is playing a central role in developing this to boost productivity within the region.
Our Call for Evidence
To develop a Local Industrial Strategy for Gloucestershire, GFirst LEP, Gloucestershire’s Local Enterprise Partnership ‘Call for Evidence’ is now closed.
Gloucestershire’s Local Industrial Strategy will set the direction for the future of Gloucestershire’s economy. It will help to inform local choices, prioritise local action and, where appropriate, help to inform decisions at a national level. It will guide local investment alongside funding which is granted to Local Enterprise Partnerships by central government and other national schemes.
