The South East Midlands Local Industry Strategy covers 13 local authority areas, and is home to a network of urban areas including: Milton Keynes, Northampton, Luton, Aylesbury, Bedford, Kettering, Daventry, Wellingborough and Corby, interspersed with more rural

areas, including high-quality natural environment such as the Nene Valley and Forest of Marston Vale, and attractive market towns such as Ampthill, Oundle and Towcester.

This Local Industrial Strategy therefore sets out collective ambitions for the whole of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, as well as specific ambitions for the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) area within it. It supports the aims of the national Industrial Strategy which is government’s long-term plan to boost productivity by backing businesses to create high-quality, well paid jobs throughout the United Kingdom, with investment in skills, industries and infrastructure.
