In 2017, the North East’s nominal disposable household income per head grew by 1.3%, which was the second fastest of any region and nation in the UK in that year.

The Government has invested in local economies through the £12bn Local Growth Fund, so that places can fund their own local priorities. The North East LEP has received over £379m since 2015.
