25/04/2019 - Berkshire Local Industrial Strategy Framework Document Consultation

The UK government set out a requirement for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP’s) to create Local Industrial Strategies (LIS) in the Industrial Strategy White Paper which was published in November 2017.

The Thames Valley Berkshire LEP has a responsibility to shape a Local Industrial Strategy for Berkshire, the BLIS. The LEP has worked with numerous partners on this since early 2018 and has now published a BLIS Framework Document.

The Document sets out five priorities and poses a number of questions to ensure that it meets the needs of local stakeholders. Its publication marks a key milestone in the process of developing the BLIS, ahead of ‘co-design’ with government, as all Local Industrial Strategies must eventually be co-owned to ensure they contribute to the national Industrial Strategy published in late 2017. This tasked all 38 LEPs in the country with leading the development of a Local Industrial Strategy for their respective areas, to raise productivity and ensure that local economic assets contribute even more to the national economy.

Bracknell Forest Council is a key stakeholder for the LEP and has helped shape the Framework document. As a key stakeholder we will now be responding to the consultation, collecting the views of key stakeholders within the organisation.

 

The Executive Member will determine the Council’s response to the consultation.
