14 Identifying our priorities... What we (collaboratively) are trying to tackle...
Tackle key economic conditions and harness our latent potential LCR GVA per head is £15,600, UK it is £20,900 - equates to an £8.2bn gap The gap has remained largely unchanged over the last decade To tackle this gap we need: 18,500 businesses to match the UK average business density An additional 35,000 individuals to be economically active to match the national average An additional 46,200 individuals in employment Respond the shortfall of 90,000 jobs in our economy Increase household income per head – the deficit is £1,700 per person Source: Office for National Statistics, Regional Accounts Note: *=UK less Extra Region, excludes output that cannot be assigned to regions GVA per head per annum
16 Gross Value Added % change on a year earlier, Source: LEP analysis of Office for National Statistics, Regional Accounts Note: UK = UK less Extra Regio, excludes output that cannot be assigned to regions Continuing momentum... Growth in the economy has accelerated over the last 5 years outperforming the national average LCR one of only 2 NUTS 2 areas in England to record growth in both years of the downturn The City Region has created 12,000 private sector jobs over the last 2 years With 4,675 business start-ups recorded in 2012 the gap with the national formation rate has narrowed
Capitalising on our asset base... Source: Office for National Statistics, Annual Population Survey
18 Our strategy will be delivered by five strategic projects & a series of enabling elements... These are our priorities

Put in place the right structures (for you)...
32 Every place is different Different economic potential = different priorities Different path dependency...how did we get to here requires different response? Different institutions Essential therefore that every place is ‘enabled’ to do what is best for them... Government adds to complexity National vs local vs supra-local service funding & delivery Discretionary funding through ‘initiativitus’ Local Authorities / Combined Authorities / Mayors Transport Authorities and Local Transport Bodies LEPs (being strategic or delivering?) Cannot easily ‘fix’ the national complexity... Each local area must find its own ‘institutional fix’ – what is best for you to enable local growth? Structures are complex...
33 Our LEP...working with a CA As a Statutory Process the implications of the CA are primarily for Local Authorities but obviously, it needs to include arrangements with other bodies – such as the LEP But – joint recognition of need for a collaborative approach with the aim of ‘doing things better’ as a collective in the City Region Outcomes of the process are: LEP is a voting member on the Combined Authority securing the private sector a voice at the top table – this is unique to Liverpool City Region This allows Local Transport Body ‘transition’ = simpler structures LEP responsibilities from Government remain unchanged; but we work closely with the CA to ensure delivery of more investment, jobs and growth LEP recognised via the CA’s own protocols as the lead body for economic development at a strategic level ‘Best in class’ institutional fix? Binding collaborative working in the City Region
34 Make sure you deliver...
35 Delivery is key Effort must be about achieving something... Local Investment Local Jobs Local Growth Delivery is therefore essential... On time, on budget, well managed Achieving an impact – it has to make a change We can only expect devolution IF we deliver Proof will be in the doing not the rhetoric Those who deliver will deserve devolution As much as anything else – work with the private sector
