Local Industrial Strategies

The draft Norfolk and Suffolk Local Industrial Strategy, which builds upon the Norfolk and Suffolk Economic Strategy (the blueprint for productive and inclusive growth to 2036), has been submitted to government for review.

The draft Norfolk and Suffolk Local Industrial Strategy, which builds upon the Norfolk and Suffolk Economic Strategy (the blueprint for productive and inclusive growth to 2036), has been submitted to government for review. The strategy, prepared by the New Anglia LEP, focuses on unlocking economic potential by continuing to build upon Norfolk and Suffolk’s strengths, namely, Clean Energy, ‘ICT and Digital Creative’, and Agri-food.

The strategy seeks to, amongst other things: establish a research and innovation programme to build on existing clean energy research across regional universities and firms; invest in a Food Innovation Hub based at Honingham Food Enterprise Zone; and create a new digital hub in Norwich for the incubation of start-ups in the digital and creative cluster. The Local Industrial Strategy is set to be reviewed by the Government Implementation Board on 5 November 2019.

At Lanpro, we will be keen to see how the emerging strategy links to other initiatives such as the Cambridge-Norwich Tech Corridor. In addition, as a planning, design and development consultancy, we will be monitoring how this will be translated into local development plans, and how we can influence that process on behalf of our customers.
