What does Herefordshire hope to get out of The Marches LEP?


Recommended Posts

Having read all the background I am utterly appalled. Could no-one see that these unelected LEPs would quickly become based on cronyism? And that this would prove a so-called legitimitate way for some to make a mint? Far too tempting for those without a moral compass.


Everyone should read the Daily Mail article 


The Hereford Times today just reports the story as the IOC having a bit of a hissy fit. Lots about the LEPs being fully transparent! No-one mentions that in October the LEP and Herefordshire Council all agreed that the LEP Director could authorise spending without consulting the Committee at all,   - up to £500,000 no problem and even up to £5m if the situation is "urgent"!
