Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership’s vision is simple: To create one of the fastest growing economies in the UK, in an energised and healthy environment.

Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership provides a strategic lead in all activities contributing to the growth and vibrancy of the county’s economy and takes positive action, using the skills, capability and networks of its partners.

Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership is determined to build on the county’s strengths to increase Cumbria’s Gross Value Added (GVA) by working together to exploit our talents, building on our entrepreneurial culture, implementing new approaches and ensuring that investment and agreed interventions are targeted at the key issues and opportunities.

We have 4 priorities:

  • Advanced manufacturing growth
  • Nuclear and energy excellence
  • Vibrant rural and visitor economy 
  • Strategic connectivity of the M6 corridor 

These priorities are underpinned by interventions in four economic drivers:

  • Business support
  • Skills development
  • Infrastructure improvements 
  • Environmental sustainability
