About Us

Established in 2010, D2N2 is one of the largest Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) in England, with a population of more than two million people and with an economic output of over £42.9billion GVA (Gross Value Added).


We work closely with all our local authorities to grow the area's economy:

We are led and governed by a private sector-led Board; and supported by high profile and respected leaders from businesses, local authorities, skills and training providers, higher and further education providers, community and voluntary services organisations – working in partnership to secure a more prosperous, productive and sustainable future for the our area.


Local Enterprise Partnerships

A Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is a locally-owned partnership between local authorities and businesses.

A LEP plays a central role in deciding local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth and create local jobs.
