Assessments of how the local economy is performing have been produced by upper tier local authorities since the introduction of the Local Democracy, Economy Development and Construction Act in 2009. The purpose of the 2018 Derbyshire Local Economic Assessment (LEA) is to provide a picture of how the county’s economy is currently performing against core economic indicators, along with how things have changed since the last LEA in 2014.
