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 fifth edition.
The Local Economic Assessment 2018 provides 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. The document analyses the latest available data to highlight key trends and identify the current issues facing the local economy. The evidence base will also inform the development of a Strategic Planning Framework for the county and an Employment and Skills Strategy. All documents are complementary, providing a comprehensive strategic evidence base for influencing local growth and attracting local investment into the area.
