Terms and Conditions

This website is owned by Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.  LEPs are partnerships between local authorities and businesses and play a central role in determining local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive growth and the creation of local jobs. LEPs are non-statutory bodies. This means they can look and operate very differently from each other, in terms of size, capacity and governance. All LEPs must be chaired by a business person and at least half of the members must come from the private sector. LEPs have responsibility for bidding for central government funding and influencing local funding streams and ensuring that these deliver against the locally agreed priorities.  LEPs do not deliver projects themselves but bring together key partners from business, academia and local government to help create economic growth and jobs by investing in our people, places and businesses.
