How firm is the requirement to cover the whole of a LEP? Our footprint covers more than one LEP. Our 'home' LEP is large and has profoundly different employer mixes in different regions, so it will be hard for anyone to produce a genuinely unifying LEP that serves the whole region. Two sub-LEP IoTs would have a better chance of serving their respective communities.
