Government performance review praised partnership's spending commitment for programmes such as the Local Growth Fund.
The Humber LEP has been graded “exceptional” for delivery in the Government’s latest performance review.
The results of January's annual review, which were published last week, rated the Humber LEP as “good” for governance and said it continues to meet Government’s requirements for strategic impact.
Officials commented on the LEP’s “clear decision making with a strong emphasis on value for money and independent external assessment”.
They also praised the LEP’s level of spending commitment for programmes such as the Local Growth Fund, which is higher than many other LEPs. The funds were originally secured for the region through competitive bidding by the Humber LEP.
Lord Chris Haskins, chair of the Humber LEP, said: “We are very pleased with the outcome of our annual review. It’s great to see that the Government agrees we are serving the region in an effective way and having a positive impact.
