Local Economic Assessment

Local Economic Assessment


The Local Economic Assessment provides the public sector, Local Enterprise Partnership, businesses, and the voluntary and community sector with a comprehensive picture of local economic conditions.  It contains key evidence, information and intelligence to inform decisions that affect the local economy.

Over time we have changed the way we have produced the LEA, from annually printed hard-copy documents, to the current version which is fully web-based.  This change means we can provide more timely economic data and intelligence to support sustainable economic growth and improve prosperity in the county.

The LEA is now a 'living' document, which means it:

  • is updated as new data are released
  • allows us to undertake more detailed analyses of priority topics and to add to the document as new work is completed
  • is easier to copy and paste text and charts directly from the webpages into MS Word, to support funding bids and policy documents
  • is easier to navigate and to find the information you require


Please begin browsing content.

Any suggestions for improving the functionality or content of the LEA website are welcome - please contact Vicky Newby at or 01905 822898.

Past annual reports are also available below:
