Following an extensive review of the local economy utilising professional input from consultants GVA as well as local businesses, stakeholders and the community, we developed a 10 year economic strategy.
This strategy outlines the actions needed to support the growth of our economy. We intend to continue to work closely with the business community and our partners to deliver what is needed for our district to continue to prosper.
Despite the challenging times on public finances, investing in economic growth and regeneration is a key priority for us – proven by our commitment to inject £5million over the next 10 years into its delivery, which will look to support the growth of existing businesses, establish and attract new businesses and evolve the market towns.
The strategy was approved by Cabinet on 2nd December 2014 allowing us to make preparations in earnest to begin delivery of the many actions in 2015. The strategy is divided into 5 key themes.
