3. Investing in Prosperity

Investing in Prosperity is one of our corporate projects. In addition to supporting existing local businesses and new start ups, we want to attract new investment into the district in a bid to provide more and better paid jobs. All of the reporting has been done under our Strategy Themes.

We have recently adopted a Jobs Plan 2021 - Covid-19 recovery.
