Suffolk: County council seeks business views on growth strategy
AS the UK economy bounces along with little sign of a major recovery, Suffolk County Council is seeking views from businesses in the county about how it can help them grow.
And it is looking for views on a Suffolk Growth Strategy during a consultation period which continues until the end of next week.
In the form of a survey available online, businesses and individuals across Suffolk are being asked to comment on the proposed strategy, with an opportunity to express their views until next Friday.
The council has been working with partners in district and borough councils to develop an effective strategy for Suffolk that will deliver economic growth, create more jobs and increase prosperity.
The strategy defines the public sector’s ambitions and how local councils, by working together, intend to achieve these goals and enable the growth of the private sector across Suffolk as a whole.
