)
 Employment and Skills

UK Context
• Govt asked LEPs to lead on EU Investment Strategy
• LEP led programmes / activities to
• focus on local need and opportunity
• reflect and align with national policy and priorities
• LEP and local partners working together (regulatory)
• Local EU Strategies sit within the National Growth and Job strategy
Single pot ( April 2015)
• LEPs to produce a Local Growth Plan / Competitive element
• Local Growth Teams to support and ensure compliance
• Supplementary guidance (received July 2013)
• Opt-in prospectuses (received July 2013)
LCR Allocation
• LCR given EU allocation of €220.9m (c. £190m)
(£112.3m ERDF / £77.7m ESF)
• Judicial Review ongoing
• Roughly 1/3 of amount received in 2007-2013 period
• Government methodology based on 2013 allocations
• extended 2013 amount for a seven year period
• Transition Regions given a 20% uplift
• Penalises LCR “phasing in” status in the current period
(because of front loading)
• Equates to €147 per head of population (lowest in NW) and
half that awarded to the North East
• 6 “More Developed” regions will receive more than LCR
What UK Government wants
• Collective submissions from 39 LEPs and can come together to create a national
ERDF and ESF programme
• A strong emphasis on economic growth (to create jobs)
• international trade (to help balance of trade)
• low carbon / energy (sustainability and climate change agenda)
• Greater involvement of the private sector
• developing local strategy / priorities
• programme delivery (particularly private sector match funding)
• Opportunities for Govt Depts (BIS, DWP etc) to access ERDF and ESF by asking
LEPs to “opt-in” to national initiatives
• More investment and less grant
• Increased use of revolving funds,
• encouraging LEPS to use Financial Instruments
• Continued focus on about claw back and misuse of EU funding
• tight control of programme management and project approvals
LCR Approach
• A significantly different programme
• Cut our cloth accordingly
• Acts as a catalyst
• Unlocks major schemes
• Need for focus and fewer projects
• Challenging but realistic in delivery terms
• Remains a significant funding package
• Moving towards a commissioning model
What we have done so far...
• Stakeholder events (April & September 2013) wider buy-in
• Bottom up approach:
