Solent LEP Panels perform an important role, with oversight of the delivery of each of our priority areas of work. Whilst the specific actions of each Panel are different and bespoke for their areas, this includes a range of activities; from leading the delivery of LEP funded programmes and supporting the work of partner organisations, to providing expert advice to the LEP Board on key strategy and policy development decisions. They also provide a key monitoring function for the LEP in relation to the delivery of targets published in the Solent Strategic Economic Plan.
Each Panel has its own terms of reference, operational budget and is chaired by an independent private sector expert. Further information on each of the Solent LEP Panels is available here.
