We are currently developing a strategic economic plan for Warwickshire.

This plan seeks to bring all our partners together to create a future of inclusive and sustainable growth across our County, one where all residents can benefit, and the environment is protected. ​This will be underpinned by our ambitious, productive and vibrant local economy where we focus on investing in our many assets and strengths.  ​

To inform this plan we would like to hear the views of residents and businesses on the priorities, areas of focus and missions we have identified.

This image shows a circle with the word 'Priorities'. This is surrounded by 3 smaller circles, each representing a priority. The first circle is 'Ambitious Growth'. The description underneath is "Create a highly productive, vibrant and ambitious economy that builds on and maximises our economic strengths​". The second circle says 'Inclusive growth' and the description is "Develop an economy that works for all our residents, one that tackles existing inequalities and ensures that everyone benefits from a strong and prosperous business base ". The third circle says '​Sustainable Growth' and the description is "Grow our economy in a sustainable way, respecting the natural environment and helping us move to net-zero Warwickshire by 2050.".
