Feedback from Minister of State, Greg Clark MP
Following D2N2’s submission of the first draft of its D2N2 Strategic Economic Plan, we have now received official feedback from the Minister of State, Greg Clark MP.
D2N2 Chief Executive David Ralph said: “His feedback highlighted the need for the SEP and Growth Deal to be transformational, drawing on the experience from the Nottingham City Deal. He wants to see priorities ‘that will really make a difference’, including smaller ones for 2015/16 delivery.
“It is clear Government should understand what it is buying – including a compelling story about value for money and capability including systematic appraisal and strong risk management. Plans with the most plausible private sector leverage are likely to be the most credible.”
All 39 Local Enterprise Partnerships must submit their final Strategic Economic Plan by March 31, in a competitive process with a total of £10billion available through the ‘single pot’ to the LEPs over five years – £2billion a year.
