Local Industrial Strategy Sector Action Plans

As part of the West Midlands Local Industrial Strategy (LIS), launched in May 2019 (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/west-midlands-local-industrial-strategy), Black Country LEP has led on the production of key sector action plans for the following sectors: aerospace, construction, rail and metals and materials.

These are aimed to be business-led, action-led strategies which will play a critical role in the implementation of the LIS; the LEP has worked closely with sector trade bodies and the wider private sector to ensure they meet the needs of industry.

The action plans are still in development and the LEP is still welcoming comments from businesses and other organisations: if you’d like to provide feedback and discuss the action plans further – please contact Charlie Hopkirk at charlie_hopkirk@blackcountryconsortium.co.uk.
