The Government published a green (consultation) paper, Building our Industrial Strategy, in January 2017.
The Humber LEP and local authorities submitted a single joint response to the Government’s consultation. This was informed by engagement with around 120 businesses and around 20 other stakeholders. Our engagement in this first phase included:
- Asking our partners in business membership organisations to feed in the views of their members
- Specific engagement with small businesses, led by our then Small Business Champion Graham Cross
- 1:1 contact through local authority Key Account Management
- Discussions at our sub-boards, sector groups and Skills Network
- An online survey
