Nick Pulley, Chairman of LLEP, which also delivers the Leicestershire Business Gateway growth hub, said: “We have opted to run this business breakfast with a ‘transport strategies’ theme and have opened it up to businesses that might be interested in hearing how emerging road, rail and air plans could affect their businesses.

“Our goal is to work with our partners to make positive changes and to grow our economy. In the field of transport, this might be making domestic and international freight distribution better to help exporting and importing of goods, easing journey times or improving the ways people enter, leave or get around the area for business, work or leisure, for example.

“We would like to see businesses with a particular interest in transport or distribution and logistics to attend and see how plans are shaping up and how we as a LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership), intend to work with our partners to effect and champion improvements for Leicester and Leicestershire.”

Businesses will hear about Leicestershire’s new Rail Strategy; the part that Leicester and Leicestershire plays in the ‘Midlands Connect’ transport strategy, which is looking at major infrastructure changes needed to improve the connectivity across the region.
