The Strategic Growth Plan is being prepared in three key stages:

The Strategic Growth Statement Stage – Setting the scene

The Draft Plan Stage – Preparing the details of the plan

The Final Plan Stage – Finalising the plan


Where are we

Stage 1 - Strategic Growth Statement

Consultation in Summer 2016 about:
- High level objectives
- Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats
- What to include as the evidence base of the plan
- Different types of options for the distribution of growth.

Stage 2 - Developing the evidence base

We have commissioned a number of studies to inform our work. These are available on this website.

Stage 2 - Developing the Draft Strategic Growth Plan

We have now published a Draft Plan for public consultation. A summary leaflet has also been produced. Both are available on this website.

Stage 2 - Consultation on the Draft Plan

Consultation on the Draft Plan begins on 11th January and extends until 5th April 2018. We welcome views. Details on how to comment are available on this website.

Stage 3 - Developing the Final Strategic Growth Plan

During the autumn of 2018 we will publish a final version of the plan that takes into account the feedback from the consultation on the Draft Plan.
