What is the Economic Strategy?
The Economic Strategy identifies the priorities for economic development within the East Riding.
The strategy is currently under review.
The document was prepared by the council and is acting as a blueprint in guiding economic activity in the East Riding, with the aim of promoting growth and inclusion all parts of our area. A mid-term review was completed in January 2021 to reflect a new EU-UK relationship, Local Enterprise Partnership reform and the announcement of a broad package of complementary UK-wide funding to support economic development.
The strategy identifies four priorities to enable the East Riding to respond to the Government’s vision at a local level.
It aims to build on the East Riding’s natural strengths, such as those in food, manufacturing and the renewable energy sector while continuing to address longstanding challenges in productivity, innovation, business growth, skills demand and existing pockets of deprivation in urban, rural and coastal areas.

What is the Local Economic Assessment (LEA)?
The Local Economic Assessment presents the latest information on the East Riding economy and its Functional Economic Areas (FEAs). Local economies do not adhere to administrative boundaries and so FEAs are useful in allowing the identification of key economic centres, the drivers for economic activity, and growth opportunities and/or challenges to be addressed.
The purpose of an economic assessment is to provide a robust evidence base that will underpin strategic planning, investment decisions, and delivery plans.
The economic assessment consists of the following sections:
The East Riding Local Economic Assessment can be found on the East Riding Intelligence Hub website:
How often will the LEA be updated?
The LEA is a 'live' document hosted by the East Riding Intelligence Hub website and is maintained on an ongoing basis to ensure that it provides the latest available information about the East Riding economy. The assessment is divided into eight chapters with each addressing a different theme.
These profiles can either be viewed online or downloaded as a PDF document and printed as required.
