Local Development - Local Enterprise Partnerships (BCLEP)

The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (BCLEP) aims to create the conditions for enterprise to flourish resulting in greater economic prosperity across the Black Country area.

It will do this through facilitation and co-ordination of actions by private, public and voluntary sector organisations with a focus on stimulating the drivers of economic development, education & skills development and infrasturcuture & environmental enhancements.

Outcomes from these collaborative actions are focused on increasing the levels of employment, improving the levels of businesses operating within the area, modernisation and diversifying the business base and upskilling across the workforce, which will all contribute to the BCLEP's Key Performance Measure of closing the Black Country's productivity gap (2012 -£6.2bn pa)
