LEP Board
Register of
Interests

The Companies Act 2006 requires directors to avoid situations in which a director “has (or can have) a direct or indirect interest that conflicts, or possibly may conflict, with the interests of the company”.

As a result of the Mary Ney Review into LEP governance and transparency and the revised National Assurance Framework, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government issued a new 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.

As the country prepares for the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions from next Monday the long-term impact of the pandemic on the local jobs market is far from certain.
The furlough scheme, introduced 15 months ago, is starting to unwind and is due to end on 30 September. At its peak in May last year it was paying the wages of 8.9 million workers. Since then it’s shrunk to around 1.5 million but we’ve no idea how many of those jobs will still exist over the next few months.
