Local Economic Assessments (LEA) have been produced by upper tier local authorities since the introduction of the Local Democracy, Economy Development and Construction Act in 2009 and this document is Derbyshire’s fourth edition.
The Local Economic Assessment 2014 provides an assessment of the county’s economy and the factors which contribute to economic performance in Derbyshire. A range of evidence has been analysed including the latest datasets in order to highlight the key trends and challenges facing the local economy. The LEA has been developed alongside the Derbyshire Economic Strategy Statement, both documents are complementary and provide a comprehensive strategic evidence base for influencing local growth and attracting local investment into the area.
The Derbyshire Economic Review aims to give a brief snapshot of the latest statistics and news on the Derbyshire economy both in a national and local context. The review is published on a quarterly basis.
