Our Enterprise Zones (EZ) are partnerships between the public and private sector, working together to deliver job creation and commercial innovation for the benefit of the local, Midlands and national economies.
These partners are brought together within our governance structure which provides a mechanism to deliver strategic advice and support for the development of the EZ.
Each EZ site has a steering group with representatives of the involved partners for that site, including the site owners, relevant local authority, the LLEP, Invest In Leicester and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The EZ Steering Groups are responsible for driving forward the Enterprise Zone initiative across Leicester and Leicestershire. They have oversight of the development of their specific Enterprise Zone site, monitor the site implementation plan, and are a forum to provide advice, support, and share best practice. Crucially they provide strategic input to the Programme Board on the projects coming forward for funding through the Programme Development Process.
