Economic development and regeneration strategy

About the strategy

Economic regeneration is a key corporate priority for the council and we have delivered significant outcomes linked to the former adopted Economic Regeneration Strategy. The new strategy sets out the vision and aims for ensuring the whole borough prospers from economic growth over the next four years. The strategy has the following vision:

  • To have a vibrant location with a competitive and thriving local economy across the whole of the borough
  • To attract and sustain investment, business growth and entrepreneurship
  • To have a flexible and skilled workforce enabling sustainable communities and a location where people want to live and work, because good quality jobs are available in both the urban and rural areas of the borough
  • To enable an environment of partnership and collaboration, where the private and public sector come together to invest in the future of the borough

The strategy has the four key aims:

  • Local investment in place
  • Local investment in business
  • Local investment in people
  • To work in partnership to fulfil the economic potential of the area

The strategy is supported by a detailed background and action plan document aligned to the key aims and objectives of the strategy.
