Have your say in shaping Dorset’s Economic Future - Shaftesbury

 Have your say in shaping Dorset’s Economic Future

On Thursday 11 April 2019, between 08:30 – 10:30 AM, at The Royal Chase Hotel in Shaftesbury, Dorset LEP will be hosting an event on the new Local Industrial Strategy (LIS).

Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (Dorset LEP) is delighted to welcome you and all business and industry leaders to our first round of consultation events on the county’s new Local Industrial Strategy. The strategy will outline how the LEP will work in partnership to deliver economic growth, prosperity and productivity in Dorset.

These events will provide opportunities for all stakeholders to share good practice, innovations and great ideas that are already being delivered in Dorset and could be scaled up. These will be highly interactive events with all partners having the opportunity to share their views.

Together, we will:

  • Present the opportunities Local Industrial Strategy brings to Dorset

  • Understand the range of economic ambitions for the area

  • Discuss emerging ideas and possible interventions for the local economy

9:00 - 9:10: Intro to Local Enterprise Partnership and Local Industrial Strategy

9:10 - 9:20: Economic overview of the area
