Economic Strategy for Norwich and Norfolk with the LEP and Richard Bacon MP

Friday, 14th June 2019

Norwich City Council's Economic Strategy for Norwich, which we believed was hugely inadequate.  

However, it is considered as conservative and needed to learn more about the plans for Norwich that are already out there.   

Having heard Jeanette Wheeler, who is on the LEP board, speak at a recent Chamber of Commerce event, Chris Starkie. its CEO, are going to come and discuss the economic strategy for Norwich and Norfolk as part of their outreach work.  

In Chloe Smith MPs absence, we are pleased to invite Richard Bacon to host the event with us. We are so delighted to invite Mark Lapping who organizes the Norfolk Enterprise Festival. Many Conservative County and District Councilors will also be present.

The discussion
Jeanette and Chris wants to talk about our LEP's economic strategy and how it applies to Norwich and Norfolk, including what we can do to help them in their delivery. Mark wants to talk about the Norfolk Enterprise Festival.
