The Economic Growth Strategy for the Harrogate district's (2017 - 2035) aim is to adopt a co-ordinated, corporate approach to prioritise and support 'good growth' in the district, to achieve a sustainable and resilient economy by 2035 (featuring new higher value jobs, an increase in Gross value added (GVA) and a boost in average workplace wages to at least the regional average).
This aim will be achieved by delivering interventions in the following strategic themes:
- land and buildings for growth
- skills for growth
- targeted business support
- conditions for growth: digital and telecoms
- conditions for growth: transport
- branding and promotion
The interventions within these key themes will focus on four key sectors
- creative and digital
- financial and professional services
- scientific research and development
This new economic growth strategy is all about providing a long term framework to build on our strengths, address our challenges, create effective partnerships and deliver positive, focused interventions to create a more sustainable economy for the future.
