In November 2015 the LLEP, Leicestershire County Council and the 7 District Councils jointly commissioned a piece of work to investigate the role that Leicestershire’s market towns play within the sub-regional economy.
The appointed consultants, ERS Ltd, undertook numerous focus groups with local businesses and key organisations, as well as reviewing existing documentation and data, to assess our market towns’ economic value and identify priority projects to support future growth. The final report is available for download below.
As a result of this work a steering group, the Market Towns Working Group, has been established to oversee the development of county-wide projects. For further information please contact Helen Harris on 0116 305 7025.
