LEPs were set up by the coalition government in 2010 – replacing the nine regional development agencies – and Adonis was told industry could not stomach another change to the architecture of local business support. The new LEPs will also be given direct say over growth strategies and priorities, backed by a substantial single pot of funding to invest in economic development.
