How the North East LEP is governed
We are governed by our Board which is comprised of business leaders, education providers, economic experts and local authorities.
It is at the North East LEP Board meetings that all of our key decisions are made.
You can view meeting agendas and minutes along with a register of interests for our Board members here.
We also have an Investment Board and three advisory boards; the Business and Sector Growth Board, the Skills Advisory Panel and the Innovation Board. Our boards drive forward our delivery programmes while our executive team is responsible for the day-to-day delivery of each programme.
Up to 31 March 2020, the North East Combined Authority (NECA) provided the formal accountability and scrutiny arrangements for the North East Local Enterprise Partnership.
From 01 April 2020, the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) took over provision of the formal accountability and scrutiny arrangements for the North East Local Enterprise Partnership. Minutes from the NTCA Overview and Scrutiny Committee meetings including those attended by the North East LEP can be accessed here. Financial accounts for the North East Local Enterprise Partnership covering the 2020/21 financial year, and onwards, are available to view here.
