Solent LEP chooses representative for Solent Freeport

Paula Swain has been announced as the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) representative on the Solent Freeport Consortium Board.

Paula said: "The Solent LEP is committed to working closely with the Solent Freeport to maximise the benefits the Freeport will bring to the local community and local economy, creating jobs and boosting investment.  There's an enormous opportunity here to harness new approaches and initiatives to help us achieve our ambition for the Solent to lead the UK's coastal renaissance."

The Solent is one of eight regions in England selected by the Government to be a Freeport. Freeports are an important part of the UK’s post-Covid economic recovery, and the Solent Freeport will unlock billions of pounds’ worth of investment.

Paula said: "I'm excited to represent the Solent LEP as the Solent Freeport develops, creating quality employment opportunities, and realising the potential to revitalise our coastal communities."

Paula Swain joined the Solent LEP Board in June 2018.
