About the NP11
The NP11 is the business-led voice for the North that brings together the 11 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) from across the North of England.
Our work is focused on driving economic prosperity to build a thriving and well-connected Northern Powerhouse, based around a series of priority areas:
We work in partnership across the public and private sectors, connecting the North so that it is greater than the sum of its parts.
By focusing on the North’s priorities and prime capabilities as identified in the Northern Powerhouse Independent Economic Review, we aim to have a positive impact upon people’s lives and unlock the North’s full potential.
We work and advise the government on issues such as how to increase productivity, overcome regional disparities in economic growth and tackle the historic north-south divide.
An ever-strengthening commitment to partnership working with the North’s business and civic leaders has helped attract and accelerate investment from Government, businesses and international investors in recent years.
With major investments in infrastructure, commercial opportunities and innovative technologies continuing to emerge at scale and pace, the North has the opportunity to be the solution to the UK’s future prosperity.
