Chance to influence Council’s economic strategy!

NEXT TUESDAY 28th AUGUST 2012 is the closing date on the Council’s new draft Economic Development Strategy for the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The final strategy will communicate the key priorities required to deliver both economic growth and – a vital focus in the current climate – greater economic resilience for the area.

The strategy will guide the Local Strategic Partnership’s (LSP) economic vision for the East Riding in the coming years. It will allow the LSP and its partners to focus on continuing to build and protect a strong and resilient economy for the whole East Riding. It will champion the area’s competitive businesses, strategic linkages, appropriately skilled workforce, economic assets and housing offer, and will enable the East Riding to build on its current economic base and to drive sustainable growth, particularly in the green economy.

The consultation on the Economic Development Strategy gives businesses and residents in the East Riding the chance to directly influence the economic future of the area.
