Our Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) is our key overarching growth strategy that sets out how we intend to bring together our European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Strategy, City Deal and our Growth Deal to build on our competitive advantages and tackle the major risks to our economy.

Our SEP provides the framework for achieving our vision by investing in our place, our businesses and in our people.

We have committed to delivering flagship programmes for each theme.

Our City Deal will deliver our flagship programmes for businesses and people.

The Growth Deal will provide the resources to deliver our Place flagship programme – Infrastructure to support our Growth Areas and Transformational Priorities.
