  • LEPs to be the fundamental building blocks receiving a 7 year notional allocation subject to periodic performance reviews

  • LEPs to identify their preferred EU investment strategy as part of their wider strategy for agreement by the Growth Board. LEPs to select projects and oversee delivery against their strategy

  • Government departmental teams to work as “CSF Area Growth Teams” to support LEPs in the development and delivery of projects and oversee management of the funds

  • National co-financing initiatives to take account of local needs.

  • ‘ITIs’ may be an option in a limited number of places - where this arrangement will deliver better value, higher impact results.
