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.
Stage 3 - Going through the approval process
We have now published a revised plan taking into account the feedback from the consultation on the Draft Plan. This is available on this website. Partners will be considering approval of the plan before the end of 2018.
