Our Ambition


Attracting investment for growth in the South East

We will use the scale of our LEP to maximise private, public and community investment. In doing so, we will build strongly on plans developed with local business experience and market knowledge across our functional economic areas to deliver and target growth.

A place where people want to live and work

Quality of life and work-life balance go hand in hand. This means we have more and more people wanting to live and work and set up their businesses in the South East; we must prepare for this growth by creating the best places to live, work, visit and study in.

A prime location

Our proximity to London and neighbouring local enterprise partnerships puts us in prime position to drive prosperity in the South East; a gateway to enterprise, innovation and trade for UK and Europe.

What we are is a growing, dynamic network of growth corridors. It’s vital we progress at a determined pace to achieve some major priorities specifically tackling our infrastructure deficit; fully maximizing the benefits of the Lower Thames Crossing development; and providing the critically needed commercial and creative workspace to help make everyone more successful.
