The plan, for Suffolk and Norfolk, focuses on growing key sectors such as tourism, energy, advanced manufacturing, engineering and life sciences.

The LEP wants feedback to make sure investment goes to the right priority areas.

New Anglia LEP Chairman, Andy Wood OBE, saidd: “We are ambitious to transform the economy of Norfolk and Suffolk and to establish New Anglia as a centre of business excellence within the UK and across the global economy.

“The Plan for Growth sets out our vision and strategy and invites you to help shape our Plan and inform the right decision-making as we focus on investment priorities and growth.

“This is an important opportunity for businesses, private investors, local authorities, community representatives and leaders, voluntary organisations – and all those who live and work in Norfolk and Suffolk - to work with us to share priorities for the future.

“Working together, we have proved ourselves to be a formidable team, ambitious for the future of New Anglia and capable of delivering spectacular results for the local economy.

“I am very excited about the potential here, and invite you to contribute to this consultation and help shape the exciting future that lies ahead.”
