LIS Evidence Base


D2N2 is committed to creating a future for all of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire that is productive, prosperous, and inclusive as set out in the D2N2 Strategic Economic Plan, Vision 2030.

In support of Vision 2030, the D2N2 Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) will contain a number of focused, evidence-backed priorities which drive us towards achieving this vision.

Underpinning the LIS is a vast and expansive evidence base. This extensive analysis of the D2N2 area’s economic strengths and challenges is mapped across the five foundations of productivity as set out in the national Industrial Strategy as well as the four ‘Grand Challenges’ in the UK’s Industrial Strategy.

Evidence Base Consultation Period

Development of the LIS involves stakeholder consultation. In particular, D2N2 would like to hear from stakeholders on the following:

  • The accuracy of the evidence base in reflecting the current economic landscape of D2N2
  • The completeness of the information contained within the evidence base
  • The degree of insight the evidence base gives into the five pillars of the UK National Industrial Strategy and the four grand challenges facing the UK.

To aid the consultation, the complete LIS Evidence Base has been broken down into the following areas. 

D2N2 has also published a series of supporting documents for the Evidence base:

The deadline for the consultation is 18th October 2019.
