'Refresh' of the D2N2 LEP Strategic Economic Plan

In early 2019 the D2N2 LEP 'refreshed' its original Strategic Economic Plan (or SEP), published 2013, to address the expected economic challenges and opportunities for its area (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire) up to 2030. The original SEP had set a target to create 55,000 new private sector jobs by 2023, in response to the key challenge to ‘rebalance’ the local economy; with annual D2N2 State of the Economy reports showing great progress on that target. Productivity is a key focus of the new SEP, entitled Vision 2030. An online copy can be read by CLICKING ON THIS LINK or the cover below.

The SEP refresh followed extensive discussions with businesses of all sizes, local authority partners and other organisations; a series of public SEP consultation events held in autumn 2018; and use of an online survey portal. An evidence base on the local economy was also provided to inform the review of the Strategic Economic Plan.
