Growth Plan

Helping Bedford Borough’s Economy Grow

 

Bedford Borough Council Executive has agreed the Bedford Borough Growth Plan 2018-2022.

 

The Growth Plan will shape the Council’s work to promote economic development and regeneration helping Bedford Borough compete as a location for business. It aims to support the growth of existing businesses, secure new investment and ensure local people have the skills to take advantage of the jobs on offer.

 

This plan reports on the current economic climate and has developed a comprehensive range of actions under the broad themes of ‘Grow Business’, ‘Enhance Place’, and ‘Develop People’. These include the work being undertaken to improve our transport network and enhance the town centre through the Transporting Bedford 2020 project, the ongoing work of the One Public Estate programme, and business support at our i-brand facilities.

 

This is the Council’s second Growth Plan and a revision of the first which was approved in November 2013.

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson said “We are committed to continuing to encourage and champion business, investment and development to help grow and support Bedford Borough’s economy.  But this Growth Plan looks beyond just businesses, to how the Council can help foster the best possible environment for residents to live happy, healthy and prosperous lives in Bedford Borough.”
