Local Economic Assessment

Local Economic Assessment

The Local Economic Assessment (LEA) presents the latest information on the East Riding economy. The purpose of the assessment is to provide a robust evidence base that underpins strategic planning, investment decisions and delivery plans.

Local economies do not follow typically used boundaries, so Function Economic Areas (FEAs) are used instead. FEAs are useful when identifying key economic centres, the drivers for economic activity, growth opportunities and challenges to be addressed.
