What is the Local Economic Assessment?
The Local Economic Assessment (LEA) provides a profile of the local economy and a common economic evidence base for use by businesses, public sector bodies and the Government. The LEA gives a detailed understanding of economic strengths, opportunities and challenges in Dorset. By using a common evidence base, we can help to guide planning and investment strategies and promote greater partnership working in delivering shared aspirations.
This is explained in more detail on the Dorset For You website.
