Lower Thames Crossing Consultation and SE LEP Business website launched


The South East LEP has launched its business facing website encouraging local companies to have their say on the Lower Thames Crossing consultation.

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.
