Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Greater Lincolnshire LEP has worked alongside over 25 local authority, private sector, third sector, and education organisations to support the economy and business community. The Greater Lincolnshire Plan for Growth united various medium term commitments from these partnerships to outline strategic objectives that will drive the revival of our economy as we emerge from the pandemic.

Short term recovery plan

The short term recovery plan covered near-term, pragmatic commitments and actions across five strategic objectives which we have subsequently taken forward together with our local partners. This focused on key areas such as Business Support, Workforce, Key Economic Sectors such as manufacturing and food, Economic Intelligence, and Funding. You can read our short term recovery plan here.

Engaging with Government

Throughout the pandemic, the Greater Lincolnshire LEP has delivered local intelligence and represented our business views to Government to help inform the national recovery plan. We have also put in a submission as part of a wider BEIS Super Enquiry on Post-Pandemic Economic Growth. This enquiry looks at the Government's options to secure economic recovery from the pandemic, covering investment, industrial strategy, jobs, skills, exports, and sustainable growth.

“Levelling up: local and regional structures and the delivery of economic growth” is a sub-inquiry examining how local and regional government structures in England could be reformed or better equipped to deliver growth locally, with specific reference to the Government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda. You can read our response here.
