Herefordshire Business Board

Herefordshire Business Board is an independent body that has a vital role in supporting enterprise and economic growth for Herefordshire. It brings together representatives from the private sector and lead contacts within key regeneration projects across the county.

Members of the Herefordshire Business Board are given an opportunity to guide and influence the strategic economic direction of Herefordshire, working alongside business partners, the local authority and the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership.

By sharing information, research and evidence the Herefordshire Business Board puts Herefordshire in a powerful position to develop projects and prioritise development in the county. It  helps to create a strong economy, better value jobs, growth and the infrastructure to support a thriving economy.

The key role of the Herefordshire Business Board is to represent the collective interests of businesses in the county. It aims to be the advocate and voice of business in Herefordshire through the encouragement and promotion of sustainable business development and inward investment.

In summary, Herefordshire Business Board:

  • Provides a Herefordshire “voice” on the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Board and champions Herefordshire projects within the Marches LEP strategic economic plan and geographical area.
  • Aids collaboration and communication within the private sector and the local authority and other public funding bodies.
