The London Enterprise Panel is the local enterprise partnership for London. It is co-Chaired by Kit Malthouse and Harvey McGrath. Its membership is drawn from London’s business community and local authorities.
The purpose of the London Enterprise Panel is to advise the Mayor of London on action to:
- Provide strategic investment to support private sector growth and employment;
- Promote enterprise and innovation and the acquisition of skills for sustained employment in London;
- Protect and enhance London’s competitiveness.
Meeting agendas, public papers and minutes can be accessed on the LEP meetings page.
The LEP’s Jobs & Growth Plan, published on 2nd May 2013, can be accessed here.

It should be noted that, because of London’s unique governance arrangements, the Panel’s role is not the same as that of the local enterprise partnerships that have been established elsewhere in the country. For example, in London, the functions of the former London Development Agency (the Regional Development Agency for Greater London) have been folded into the Greater London Authority and will not be taken on by the London Enterprise Panel. The Panel will therefore have an advisory role and work within the framework set by the London Plan and other Mayoral strategies. Whilst the Panel may make recommendations to the Mayor with regard to funding and policy decisions, the Panel will not directly deliver services such as business support.
