“The county council has been an active part of the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SSLEP) since it was created almost a decade ago. Our role has included providing the accountable body role for the LEP and giving direct support through additional dedicated staff time and low-cost accommodation and associated freely provided services.

 

We now look forward to participating fully within the ongoing development of SSLEP, ensuring that its future direction supports the aspirational and ambitious needs of Staffordshire businesses and communities.

 

As a democratically elected representative director, the County Council’s Leader will ensure the SSLEP will continue to be democratically accountable to our residents. The role that the county council will play in the SSLEP in promoting economic growth, ensuring the benefit of local people, is considerable.”

 

Philip Atkins, Leader of the Council

 

“One of our top priorities as a county council is to create and develop the right conditions for economic growth. We want our residents to access better jobs and be part of a more prosperous county. Economic growth helps to secure long term financial stability and is a key contributing factor in the wider determinants of health and wellbeing.

 

Working with the SSLEP, we have already supported the creation of thousands of jobs in higher value-added sectors which will have a positive impact on improving the productivity of Staffordshire’s economy.”

 

Mark Winnington, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth

 

Reasons for the Decision – The government’s National Local Growth Assurance Framework (January 2019) requires Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to move from informal partnerships into an incorporated body structure by 31 March 2019.
