Dorset LEP Annual Report 2017-2018

Our annual report is a showcase of our work from April 2017 through to March 2018.The report reflects on some of our key milestones and considers our priorities for the future.

It is has been an exciting and successful year for Dorset LEP with our hard work and enviable track record in Local Growth Fund project delivery being recognised by Government as ‘exceptional’.

Some of our highlights include the official opening of Dorset Innovation Park, the county’s new Enterprise Zone that is developing to be an advanced engineering cluster of excellence for the South West;  the installation of new business support facilities in Bridport; and developments to the major infrastructure improvements at Bournemouth Airport and the Port of Poole.

We also reflect on some of our cross-LEP collaborations and our priorities for the future.
