Our economy

At a glance

Teignbridge encourages sustainable economic growth whilst maintaining its beautiful surroundings. An action which, as a council, we are proud of, and one which we vow to continue.

From small, individual traders to large multi-national companies, the district is home to businesses which generate high skilled jobs and allow our unique local economy to flourish.

We pride ourselves on having a strong manufacturing presence in the district, particularly in engineering. With new housing developments, business space and infrastructure projects in the pipeline, there is no better time to invest in Teignbridge.

  2. Jobs and employment
  3. Wages and inflation
  4. Enterprises
  5. Education and skills
