Strategic Economic Plan
Our refreshed Strategic Economic Plan, published in July 2017, confirms the revised growth ambition shared across the Cheshire and Warrington sub-region: to grow our economy’s GVA to £50 billion per annum by 2040.
The SEP sets out the key opportunities that will drive our growth ambitions:
- The world class science, technology and innovation assets within the Cheshire Science Corridor
- The once-in-a-generation opportunity that HS2 will bring to the Constellation Partnership area and wider region
- The unique cross-border opportunities within the Mersey Dee Economic Axis, and the potential to create Warrington New City
The SEP is intended to be a high-level, strategic road map to achieving our growth ambition. The strategy has been designed to be flexible and provide a broad framework within which different areas and groups can align their activities.

During the SEP refresh process a comprehensive update of the economic evidence base was undertaken. This can be viewed here:
During the course of the summer, the more detailed, practical thinking of how the SEP priorities will be delivered will be set out in a series of supporting delivery plans and strategies, covering:
- Skills and Education
- Quality of Place
- Science and Innovation
Links to the completed plans will be available on this page as they are produced.
The LEP is planning an early review of the SEP in October 2017 and regular reviews after that.
