Welcome

The Humber is experiencing an economic, social, cultural and infrastructural renaissance and the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is at the forefront driving growth and prosperity.

We are a partnership of business, education and the four Humber local authorities working together to promote and develop the area surrounding the Humber Estuary and provide strategic economic leadership to create jobs and deliver growth.

Our priorities
