Ensuring fast and effective transport, broadband and mobile networks is vital for our area’s growth. As the largest LEP geographically, this priority is particularly important.

To do this means achieving reliable, fast journey times with sufficient public transport capacity from towns and rural areas into York, Leeds and Hull, and onto the motorway network. It means ensuring our urban centre of York capitalises on its position as a key national rail hub for the whole area’s benefit.

It also means addressing particular issues, such as congestion in our largest settlements and digital and mobile connectivity in our rural areas.
