Local Enterprise Partnerships are bringing together the public and private sector with universities, colleges and other local organisations, to ensure investment is made where it will generate the most jobs and growth.

The Government has invested £379.6m in the North East Local Enterprise Partnership area through three rounds of Growth Deals. The Easington constituency has benefitted directly through the Horden (Peterlee) Station project and the improvement to the A19/A189 Seaham/Murton interchange. Both projects will help the residents of Easington and the North East to access new and existing job opportunities.
