Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise are leading on the development and management of local partnership groups for each Enterprise Area location. These partnerships include the relevant local authorities as well as a range of key delivery stakeholders who are essential to fully exploiting the opportunities presented at each location.
The local partnership groups will perform a number of functions including:
- Ensuring information and guidance is available for potential investors.
- Integrating the wider business and employment support services at each location with the Enterprise Area offering, therefore ensuring the maximum impact on supporting growth and boosting employment.
- Brokering the development of supply chain opportunities with local businesses while engaging with Industry Leadership Groups to align Enterprise Areas with wider sectoral developments.
- Collecting monitoring and evaluation data as part of the Enterprise Area Benefit Realisation Plan.
Businesses seeking to set-up or grow within an Enterprise Area location should contact Scottish Enterprise or Highlands and Islands Enterprise for further information and to discuss the range of business support services which may be available under different circumstances. This includes information on the support services which are available to all businesses irrespective of Enterprise Area boundaries.
