As the governing body of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, our Board assesses the Humber economy and develops our strategy, setting priorities and making decisions. It oversees the work of our sub-boards and groups.
The Business Development Board leads our work on one of our three key ambitions: to support businesses to thrive in the Humber. The board supports the development of key business sectors and the co-ordination of business support, and leads our business engagement strategy.
The Investment and Regulation Board leads our work on one of our three key ambitions: to make sure the Humber has the right infrastructure that supports growth. The group is made up of representatives from local authorities, statutory agencies and businesses.
The Employment and Skills Board leads our work on one of our three key ambitions: to have a skilled and productive workforce that meets the needs of business. The board developed and oversees the implementation of the Humber Employment and Skills Strategy, supported by a number of networks and working groups.
To support the development of our Local Industrial Strategy, have established four new private-sector led advisory boards.
These boards will help provide, contribute and scrutinise the evidence for each sector to ensure that it truly reflects the situation in the Humber. They will also identify future opportunities, barriers and challenges for the sector.
These boards will work to identify policy issues that may be holding back the sector, as well as identifying priority actions that will create productive sectors and form part of the key evidence in the industrial strategy, including setting out what investments will be made by local partners
Finally, the boards will identify what ‘freedoms and flexibilities’ may be needed from the government to help grow the sectors.
Our Investment Panel makes decisions on business grant and loan applications. The Panel comprises of private sector business people with expertise covering business management, finance, law and property.
