Business community has say about future of local economy Businesses, local entrepreneurs, stakeholders and residents have the chance to say what they think about plans to shape and influence the development of the local economy in Blaby district.
Blaby District Council has produced a draft economic development strategy to lead and direct action over the next three years. It highlights the priorities for inward investment, support for business, improving skills and training opportunities as well as measures to improve infrastructure. The draft strategy aims to drive and shape the economic wellbeing of the district and views and opinions on the contents of the strategy are now invited.
Councillor Terry Richardson, portfolio holder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy, said: “The strength of our local economy is vital for us. This strategic plan outlines how the Council plans to address current challenges and seeks to deliver a prosperous, thriving economy for the benefit of the district, our businesses and local residents. “I encourage local business people and residents to let us know what they think is important and we will take comments into consideration when finalising the plan.”
