The FREE event will aim to share best practice throughout the UK’s LEPs using workshops and case studies. The seminar has come about after businesses in Pathfinder LEPs expressed concern about their relationship with local regulators.

Some are apprehensive of making contact with local officers or simply find it difficult to speak to the right person. Others cite the approach and attitude of regulatory services officers, and access to advice as problems for them.
