Yorkshire Forward Closure
Yorkshire Forward is the Regional Development Agency (RDA) for Yorkshire and Humber. As one of nine RDAs in England, we were established in 1999 to transform the English regions through sustainable economic development.
Following the Government's decision to abolish Regional Development Agencies by April 2012, we have worked closely with public and private sector bodies in region to manage the transition of our responsibilities, prior to our closure.
We remain supportive of the economic recovery and future growth of Yorkshire and Humber and are keen to work closely with our partners to help them understand the functions, projects and activities which we currently manage and deliver.
We will endeavour to keep staff, stakeholders, partners and suppliers up to date with developments throughout this transitional stage.
The Yorkshire Forward Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday 3 November. The AGM is an opportunity for the Chair and Chief Executive to formally publish the Annual Report & Accounts 2010/11 and take questions from attendees on Yorkshire Forward’s activity during that year. The meeting will be held at 1.15pm at Yorkshire Forward’s offices on Victoria Place, Leeds, LS11 5AE. Members of the public and press wishing to attend need to notify Board Secretary, Nicola Wright on 0113 394 9904 or by email to email@example.com
