Enterprise Zones Board Register of Interests

The revised National Assurance Framework was published on 8 January 2019. The Framework provides guidance around what LEPs should build into their own Local Assurance Frameworks (LAF) and explains how places should appraise, monitor and evaluate schemes to achieve value for money. The Framework also provides the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Government, stakeholders and the public the necessary assurances that LEPs have the policies and processes in place to ensure the robust stewardship of public funds.

The revised National Assurance Framework states that all LEP Board Members, Co-opted Members, Sub-Board Members and Officers must adopt the MHCLG’s bespoke register of interest proforma for the collection and publication of the information which ensures all categories of interest are systematically considered.

These forms will be held by the LEP Executive and will be updated annually; as outlined in our Assurance Framework.

Supporting a rural economy transition

A few weeks ago saw the publication of a hard-hitting report, part-funded by the LEP, about the potential loss to the South West rural economy of £883m by 2027 due to changes in farm policy. The move away from the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has been driven by Brexit, resulting in the biggest shake-up in farm subsidies for over 50 years.
