Economic Growth Strategy 2024-2028

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) presenting the Economic Growth Strategy 2024-28.




That the Economic Growth Strategy 2024-2028, as set out at appendix 1 to the submitted report, be approved and that any final minor changes prior to publication be delegated to the Executive Director (Environment and Place), in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Growth and Investment.


Reasons for decision:


Enabling economic growth and a strong and prosperous community is integral to the work of the Council.  Whilst, there is no statutory requirement to have an economic growth strategy it is good practice and the strategy can guide Council decision-making and activity to maximise the level of and benefits from economic growth for businesses and residents.


Other options:


Not to produce a new economic growth strategy.  This would represent a missed opportunity to promote and capitalise on economic growth opportunities in the city.
