West Norfolk businesses are being invited to help to shape a borough council plan for our area

Businesses in West Norfolk are being invited to help shape a plan for the future of the area.

West Norfolk Council is developing a new ten-year economic strategy with the aim of allowing the borough to “harness its strengths and bring long-term benefits”.

Through the new strategy, the council says an ambitious vision for West Norfolk will be created along with a plan for investment that could include opportunities to develop skills, improve infrastructure, support businesses and growth, or promote the area.

To help inform the strategy, business owners, managers, and employees are being asked for their views on running or working in a business in the area, what support they need to develop or contribute to the growth of their business, and their aspirations for the district’s future.

Cllr Alistair Beales, cabinet member for business, said: “Creating this economic strategy for the borough will not only provide a unifying economic vision, but will also provide a plan for how we can capitalise on the enormous potential we have in West Norfolk.

“The new strategy will allow us to identify a clear approach and priorities for future investment, building on existing investment we have secured to date, which will make West Norfolk an even better place for people to live, visit, work, and do business.

“We want to create this strategy together with the public and local businesses and the first step for us is gaining an insight into the perspective and experience of those who are running and working in businesses across West Norfolk.

“If this applies to you, please do have your say and help us shape the future for West Norfolk.”

The development of an economic strategy aligns with the creation of a county-wide strategy which is being led by Norfolk County Council to support the economic growth of the area.

Both strategies are being developed in tandem, meaning that the opportunities identified through the West Norfolk approach will feed into the wider plan for the county.

In addition to the survey, further opportunities for engagement will be offered in the coming months by both councils.

Businesses in West Norfolk have been urged to have their say by a deadline on April 28.
