Background

Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership has been allocated approximately £116m from the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme for England (2014-2020) to help us achieve our vision for jobs, growth and prosperity.

 
The Local Enterprise Partnerships to date has been responsible for driving the production and delivery of the European Structural Investment Fund strategy which will make best use of the available funds and reflect the aims set out in the area’s Strategic Economic Plan. We are now working with partners to establish our LEP Area ESIF Local Management Committee that will represent partners moving forward at a LEP Area level. 

 

The committee will ensure that:-

  • Local strategic aims are considered alongside national strategic and operational objectives.
  • Maximum impact is achieved through the Funds, thereby contributing to delivery of the overall national Operational Programmes.

It will also be responsible for:-

  • Ensuring operational delivery of activity supported by the funds,
  • Overseeing the development of an appropriate pipeline of proposals,
  • Agreeing investments and monitoring performance against targets at the LEP level.

Appointments will be made for a 3-year period. The committee will meet a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 times per annum dependant on the implementation stage of the programme.
