The South East LEP has launched its business facing website encouraging local companies to have their say on the Lower Thames Crossing consultation. www.new-thamescrossing.co.uk
This website outlines the background to the route options and connects businesses and public to the official consultation site. The website highlights other businesses and organisations supporting a new crossing, summarises evidence and the need for a strong business-led voice. There is the opportunity for businesses to feedback directly to SE LEP to help them with preparing a SE LEP wide response to the consultation.
The website forms part of a wider communications campaign from the SE LEP to encourage businesses to have their say on the consultation, as agreed at the December Board meeting. Please do take a look and importantly share with your local business communities.
