We have updated our economic strategy to reflect the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Our vision is to build upon the traditional strengths within the local economy so our businesses are resilient and prepared for the future.

We focus on five areas:

  • communications, confidence and trust – developing better intelligence to inform our actions  
  • open for business – building business confidence
  • supporting business – helping firms innovate to drive growth
  • people – enabling people to access work and skills
  • investment – planning and investing now for a sustainable future
