LEP Governance

Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) was created in 2012 to bring together businesses and civic leaders to drive private-sector led growth and job creation. It covers the local authority areas of Liverpool, Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Wirral and Sefton.

The Local Enterprise Partnership is a business-led, strategic partnership responsible for driving economic growth in the area.

As Chair of the Enterprise Advisory Board Asif Hamid will engage with and act as champion of SMEs at the LEP Board. 

In 2015 the LEP reviewed its governance structures and its delivery responsibilities to reflect the greater roles and responsibilities given to the LEP by Government. This led to a separation of its strategic role and its delivery role to avoid any conflict of interests for Board Members. Thereby the LEP Company was formed to focus on the operational side of the company, this is separate from the wider LEP Board which provides the strategic advice and guidance for economic development priorities and devolved government funds.
