The county of Cumbria is one of the fastest areas for economic growth in the UK. It is also making an increasingly important contribution to national prosperity, security and wellbeing.
The county is responsible for nationally significant economic assets across our energy, nuclear and defence industries, with new investment of £25 billion planned in the next decade to deliver major projects.
Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership is driving forward the county’s growth strategy with the aim of boosting its economy by £1.3 billion by 2024. We have a high-performing economy with ambition to grow and bring greater prosperity, security and wellbeing to those who live and work here.
