Attention Rural Businesses - D2N2 Board Members Required

D2N2 is the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Local Enterprise Partnerships are locally-owned partnerships between the public and private sector. The private-sector led partnerships play a central role in deciding local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth and create local jobs.

The role of LEPs in driving local economic growth has been re-inforced by Government in the publication of the ‘Strengthened Local Enterprise Partnerships’ review published in July 2018.

D2N2 is the fifth largest of the 38 LEPs in England, covering an area with a population of more than two million people and an economic output of around£45 billion GVA (Gross Value Added).

Their goal is to improve the productivity of the local economy through inclusive growth. Their vision is of a more prosperous, better connected, and increasingly resilient and competitive economy.

D2N2 Board

D2N2 is led and governed by its Board; made up of high-profile and respected business leaders, local authority leaders and representatives of the higher education, further education and voluntary sectors from across the D2N2 area.

They are now looking to recruit additional private sector board members to strengthen the capability and capacity of the board to deliver the economic vision for its area.

They are looking for candidates from the key business sectors in the area and from all across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Rural Action Derbyshire is keen that businesses based in rural Derbyshire are represented within D2N2 and encourage private sector rural businesses to get involved and have some influence over economic policy and growth.
