Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership

< Back to Local Knowledge

The Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) works with the government to improve the economic climate across Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

The Greater Lincolnshire LEP was one of the first LEPs to be established in the UK. It’s a partnership between the private and public sector, led by the private sector. The LEP aims to improve infrastructure and the conditions for doing business across Greater Lincolnshire. The organisation works across a diverse range of industries, from ports, logistics and farming to tourism and engineering.

The GLLEP wants the area to be known as a place to do business, so has based their priorities on improving business conditions and infrastructure. The aim is to create a dynamic economy where businesses can prosper, focusing their priorities on developing the sectors which they believe can offer real growth.


The LEP's priority sectors include:

  • Renewables
  • Care services
  • Visitor economy
  • Ports & Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Agri-food


The LEP works alongside partners to support existing and upcoming projects, focusing on where the LEP can add value to the efforts of others.

As a partnership of leaders from both the business community and local authorities with their democratic mandates, the LEP must first and foremost perform a leadership role.

This role means acting as staunch advocates for the area, working with the government to find solutions that will enable the LEP to deliver the strategic infrastructure that will drive national, regional and local prosperity and economic growth.
