In 2015 we ran a competitive bidding round that provided an opportunity for Local Enterprise Partnerships to submit bids for a new round of Enterprise Zones.

All Local Enterprise Partnerships within Yorkshire successfully submitted bids for new Zones or extensions to existing ones. We announced two new Enterprise Zones in November, in Leeds and York, and at Budget we announced an extension to the existing Sheffield Enterprise Zone that is subject to local approval.
