Economic Leadership Board

A one city approach to economic leadership.

The Economic Leadership Board (ELB) was set up to lead the work on our Economic Masterplan and to ensure we are joined up in both the decision making and the delivery.  The Board have now developed the 3, 6, 9, Vision which is set to transform our city over the next 15 years. 

It measures success through wealth creation, businesses making more money, higher employment particularly in target sectors, jobs in the city centre, increasing the number of people with high level qualifications, higher earnings of residents of the city, and fewer people on out-of-work benefits.

The Partnership Consists of:
