The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership

The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) comprises the local authority areas of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.  It is home to 29,800 businesses and, at 2,300 square metres, covers one of the largest LEP areas.  It is one of the fastest growing regions of the UK, bordered by the industrial heartland of the West Midlands to the east and Wales to the west - providing a strategic gateway for European and UK businesses through to Welsh and Irish markets.  The Marches LEP has a track record in working effectively with public and private sector partners across the West Midlands, other LEPs and neighbouring Welsh local authorities.

The Marches LEP is home to a dynamic business base where small, innovative enterprises and entrepreneurs flourish alongside the global players which have chosen to base their operations here. Agri Tech is one of the Marches LEP’s priority sectors, providing opportunities to drive innovation, promote productivity and encourage new business development within the region.
