This paper by Labour MP John Healey and writer-consultant Les Newby aims to inform development of policy and practice in sustainable economic development in England, including supporting business and job-creation. It reviews the evidence and experience of the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), which operated from 2000-2010, and the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) which have operated since 2010. Sources include the ‘learning legacy’ documents that each RDA produced as they were closed, as well independent audits. The assessment of LEPs draws on Parliamentary and other independent reports into their performance.
